|Trainees at the lycée|
|Learning how to cook with the trainees|
'Ana Aissatou', or 'Where is Susanna' in English, asked a friendly trainee.
'Aissatou is cooking Ceebu Jen.' I replied.
The whole courtyard filled with laughter and clapping. 'Aissatou is cooking Ceebu Jen! How amazing. Why are you not there?' exclaimed another trainee.
I laughed and smiled, pleased with myself for getting out of a difficult morning of slaving away in the kitchen. 'I came to help you of course.'
All their heads shook. They were not going to let me get away with this. 'You will cook for us.'
I nodded. I knew the day would come, not this soon, but I knew it would. 'Suba', or for those who manage to not speak Wolof, 'tomorrow', I replied.
