A fon ganji a?

Let me tell you how about hand washing my clothes is. Three basins and a bucket. Each item is wshed three times before it is rinsed and hung. Washing two skirts, three skirts, and a week’s worth of underwear takes about 2 hours. Just so you know. Other than that, the food is great, training is more or less interesting, and I’m settling into life here in Benin. My host...

J’ai fait un peu.

Dear Internet, Thanks for continuing to visit in my absence. Each one of you stalkers holds a special place in my heart. Life in Benin contiues to be interesting. I took my first bucket shower the other day. Fun indeed. I’m going to miss hot water. Oh wait, no I won’t, because I have to boil any water I drink. :-p Benin is an amazing country. I realized just how...

Safe and sound

Benin is hot and humid. It’s also beautiful, in its own damp, poverty-striken way. It’s only my first full day of orientation, and I’m already exhausted. I haven’t gotten a full night’s sleep in a while, and the schedule is pretty intense. Staging in Philly was pretty dry, but it was great to meet my fellow volunteers. It seems to be a pretty good group, and I can’t wait to...

My packing-fu is UNMATCHED.

Seriously. I am currently weighing in at 59 lbs. Mom tells me that the scale is off by a little bit, but still. With a possible weight limit of 80 lbs, I’m fucking SET. It is easy to make a weight limit when you are an IDIOT and have no idea whether you’ve got 70 or 80 lbs. UPDATE: 72 lbs. I am love.услуги поисковой оптимизации

Dammit!!

Everything fits (with space to spare!). Too bad I’m 5 lbs over the limit. I was chatting with Lyle the other day, explaining that weight was far more a worry for me than fitting everything in my bags. I pack like a demon . . . lots of crap in a small space is no problem. It’s getting rid of the stuff that’s difficult. :-p Gotta cut 10 lbs at...
