Africa » Mozambique » Central » Quelimane February 12th 2018

Miserably hot, infinitely interesting and beautiful. Mozambique, a land of contrasts. Loved it, let's go. Wow, I did it, have to give myself credit for that. "Too busy to leave, not feeling in the best physical condition, not sure about where I'm going". There are so many reasons we can come up with to pull back when about to leave on a slightly scary, unknown trip. I have always managed to work through those, even though sometimes it is tough. I want to be able to say at the end of the race of life that I have lived, taken the adventures my heart craved, not been afraid to jump into places that are unknown. For the most part, I have succeeded. Late fall 2017 I had my flight ticket and visa to Cameroon-West Africa. My ... read more

I still cannot write the actually name of "My Town" because chances are that somewhere out there amongst my thousands and thousands of loyal readers there is someone so repulsed by my audacity to continuously publish a public journal about ME and MY LIFE that revealing my exact location would only put a bulls eye on my back for that someone to come here and put an end once and for all to the Fresh Prince of Mozambique. I can't allow it. The show must go on. Please be warned, if you are not related to me or even if you are, you will find almost none of these photos at all interesting. Its just a few days of walking around my town. No elephants or lions were out on those days, but I'll try for ... read more

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, this would in fact be my second blog entry within the last 10 days. It must be due to that holiday magic that finds a way to touch all of us, even those of us in Mozambique. I was telling my mom that Thanksgiving is just absolutely HUGE here!! You wouldn't think it, but the streets were just overflowing with Mozambicans wearing pilgrim style hats, dressing up like turkeys, and of course bars become packed with everyone in town who has gathered around to see the Detroit Lions play football on the television. It really is just a fascinating scene. OK, so all that may be a lie, but I'm starting the Straight Talk Express (RIP) from here on out. I will break this edition up into two entries, ... read more

Why hello there! How have you been? Oh, me? I’ve been good thanks, pretty busy though. Whats that? Well yes, I believe I have lost a little weight, thank you for noticing! You actually look a little fatter to be honest. Its ok, that happens to a lot of people after high school. What? Yeah, you’re right, it has been quite a while, I apologize ….I believe the last time we talked, I had a full head of hair, my name was Jimmy Schneidewin_, I was 23, I had only run one marathon in my life, the President of the United States was white, and the record number of losses in one season for a University of Michigan football team was 7. Sounds like we have a little bit of catching up to do. And by ... read more

So I spent so much time with those other entries today that I have very little time to write this update. I am training for a marathon. The race is November 2 in Soweto South Africa. Training in Africa is harder than training in Michigan. My hair is still growing. I will include a picture of how ugly I have become. I am almost done with my original name on my Peace Corps name countdown. I will include a picture. I am happier than I was last month, and I was happier then than I was in July, and happier in July than June, etc. I still miss home a lot, but I am doing alright here.... read more

I am in the Peace Corps. I serve in Mozambique. Or is I the other way around? Peace Corps Mozambique is the name of my program. Within Peace Corps Mozambique, there exists a powerful and wise organization called The Peer Support Network (PSN). This organization is made up of only the wisest and most powerful volunteers, a network of peers, if you will. These are volunteers who have won the right to go through intense special training that will allow them to offer assistance, guidance, and advice to their fellow volunteers during this particularly stressful time of their lives. Homesickness, problems integrating into the community, feelings of excessive happiness or sadness, unpredictable bowel movements, and the like, all fall under the realm of psychosocial topics that a PSN member might be able to help you with ... read more
