African on ICE.............

Kentucky weather has provided many new experiences for James since his arrival in America.  It truly has been a learning process.  

The very first night of his arrival into America, he woke up to snow...and not just a dusting but a good presentation of the frozen white stuff.  

There are many more experiences to be had and we are taking each moment as it comes.   It is without a doubt that he will return to Sweet Salone enriched with the knowledge of many new things.
