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 family is super-sweet. I get more comments from the family of my fellow stagaires than my friends. Keep in touch, fools!
