For Thanksgiving, the volunteers in my region met in Kankan to celebrate the holiday. We had a really amazing time. We got to eat pork!!! Guinea is a predominately Muslim county and therefore eating pork is something that rarely happens due to the fact that Muslims do not eat pork. Thankfully, we found a pig farmer right outside of Kankan (at a Catholic church with a farm) that sells pigs. Buying a pig from a pig farm is something that would appear very simple, but as I’ve learned the past year, Guinea always throws in a curveball or two. I would try to explain but I am still not entirely sure what happened. But, that is my life in Guinea. There are times when I simply do not know what’s going on due to language, culture or just plain confusion but I just go with the flow and hope for the best and things usually work out. But, we were able to get the pig! We spent an entire day cooking the pig. Preparing something like this is not easy and I really valued the experience. I think every person that eats meat should understand what goes into getting the finished product. There is a ton of stuff that goes on before you walk into the supermarket and buy your prepackaged meat.
