      It's actually called The Burkina Connection, and it's on the Internet. Latest
      issue is from 2004. You'll be interested in a story by Jill Rosenheim (UV
      76-79) describing her return visit to BF with family as she celebrated her
      50th birthday. Lots of other news, too.

      Regards,
      Rob

      Robert,
      I have not seen an issue of Friends of Burkina Faso. If someone knows
      please inform the rest of us.

      I'm sure there are many more stories like mine.
