I went to visit my host family in Sapone to see how they are doing and wow, are things different! My host mom is going to have a baby! My host dad gave me a chicken to help celebrate the New Year, which I am eagerly awaiting to kill for dinner tonight. We visited Valerie at her maquis, and didn’t really want to leave. She cooked every day for us during stage and is the little piece of Sapone that we all wanted to bring to our sites. She was so excited to see us. It felt a little strange to be back there after being away for four months, but we fell right back into the swing of things. Now, we’re back in the capital getting ready for New Year’s. In the mean time, I’ll be getting some work done and enjoying the internet while it lasts.
Puusgo! Life's adventures are not just what you make them, but how you tell their stories. This is my attempt. For the next two years, I'll be a Non-Formal Education Volunteer in Burkina Faso, Africa for the Peace Corps. Between tutoring girls and boys in math and science, giving presentations on HIV/AIDS, hygiene, and malaria, and talking to parents about the importance of education, I want all my friends and family to be a part of my greatest adventure yet!
