Saw and talked extensively about latrines, learned about some drama going on in my community and AND went to Club Espoir and made a few introductions.. I feel pretty good about that because apparently none of the volunteers in my region ever work with these kids and they were pretty cool. Especially the girls. I loved how they weren’t afraid to speak up in a room full of boys which is usually the case . Also think I’ve made a new work partner … but he may have some issues with boundaries…
I am so ready for my trip to the Savanes Region of Togo. It’ll be a two day trip up with a break to lay next to the pool in Kara. Then on to being reunited with friends, turkey, birthdays and I don’t know what else. All I know is I am surprisingly looking forward to my first Thanksgiving and birthday in Togo.
Some day the winter of life will pass before us, then we’ll remember the place that proudly bore us!
Happy Founder’s Day, Roanoke!
Deeeep in our hearts….
I am covered in huge whelp like mosquito bites because of a 6 hour skype session with Jason outside last night. First time we’ve been able to really see each others face since July. I’m itchy now, but it was so fucking worth it.
This Is Togo!!!!! This is my night. sitting in my house naked drinking pure water sachets and taking ridiculous photos. I should be in bed, considering I have an early ass meeting with the peer education group. I am praying to all things holy it is a short meeting and does not require me to speak very much.But yay for it being a productive day!
Made it through first in service training and now after two weeks out of village I am going to stay in village until thanksgiving. No visiting the transit house , no pcv parties, just village living… Time to get productive . Start some PACA!
But that weekend before thanksgiving peacing out and treating myself..
tomorrow is the one year mark for my mothers passing and I feel really weird about it. Been moody and feeling crazy all month after spending so much time around people I need to just spend the day alone. Do some laundry, wash my hair, just get myself together.
Long live dark skinned aunt viv.
This screams black power
Let it keep screaming
Olifame and Adisimbole.
anyone wanted a weight loss update. I’ve lost 40lbs.
That seems like a lot to me for some reason.. When I get over the whole body wrecking experience that is malaria I’m gonna go get some things taken in. I went out today, but still nauseous as all get out. But everyone keep saying “il faut manger, Il faut manger” So i’mma try and manger. I’ve asked the lady who cooks to make “Americanish” foods to make me feel better.
