As our little family embarks on a journey that will take us to all kinds of places all over the world, I use this blog to write about my experiences in these places as an expat wife and mother.

La fête nationale
On the 7th, two days after we arrived back in Ivory Coast, it was national holiday. We had to go to a soccer game (we did manage to sneak out after three quarters, because it was getting dark and our dear daughter got hungry and bored). Local entertainment the women's league
Hi, my name is Laura Schuerwegen. After studying communications at the VUB, where I met my husband, I got married and embarked on a journey that would take me places. After a brief stop in Sweden (Norrkopping), we lived in Cameroon for about two years. First near Edea, and later on in Mbongo. During this period, june 2008, our daughter Aini was born. Since februari this year, we are living in Cote d'Ivoire.
If you are a firsttime visitor, here are some guidelines. This is mainly a personal blog. Take a peek at my labels, (on the right-hand side, below my profile etc.) most are quite self-explanatory. If you are interested about Cote d'Ivoire, you can find some information under the "Cote d'Ivoire trivia" label, pictures are under the "Cote d'Ivoire" pictures label. If you are interested in anekdotes about africa, read the "funny Africa" posts. The label "pictures: flowers etc" groups pictures of fauna and flora. If you are looking for some specific information, be sure to leave a comment, and I will try my best to answer all your questions.
