We're in Ouagadougou for the next couple days. Then we leave on Saturday with our host families to Sapone. Right now, we're just sitting in a conference room using the free internet (Wahoo!!). We had a bunch of interviews today to place us for French, to update our medical records, and to give more information for our job descriptions.
The ground is really red here, very dusty. It's more like a bunch of red sand that's been ground super fine. And hot, man, is it hot. But the current volunteers that met us here say that you adjust quickly, thankfully. There are a bunch of lizard runny the compound. I saw a huge one today that had an orange head and blue body, but it was too quick to take a picture. Flying over the Sahara yesterday was probably one of the coolest things I will ever do in my life. It was just so desolate and dry, but something everyone should see.
We are four hours ahead here, so right now it's 4:30pm.
Well, I'm going to get some food at the Pause Cafe. One of the 5 main rules here is Eat When You Can. Hence, the added food intake.
