YES! Finally I have a picture of what I call home (for the next 3 months, at least). Enjoy! Wend na ko-d nindaare! ('Goodbye and see you next time' in Mooré)

It's Friday and I am back to work. I painted and vacuumed the room that I was renting at Pacific Avenue this morning when everybody were stil asleep and carted away the remaining stuff to Baldwin. I'll be finally be givng back the keys on Sunday. Since the lawn mower is big, I will ask help from your borther through his Durango today. I first time slep at Baldwin last night. I hope to see some of your pictures (ok for security reason).

Find one in your village like a bicycle repair man who could give you a "hands-on" practice in changing bicycle tires, etc.

Again, Wend na ko-d nindaare! Amina!

i had to click the picture to have a larger view and love it son, it looks cool. are those goats in the background? sure it doesn't get flooded there since the huts are higher than the soil, right?

the 2 kids in the picture, are they your host family's children? so what do the goats, roosters, etc. do to provide a living to your host family? do you play with the animals or do you just ignore them? i think they're cute.

what about the women in your host family, do they just do housework? are you allowed to communicate with them?

by the way, what is the percentage of men and women pcv's? how are the rest of the pcv's coping up with the new culture, food, training, transportation, etc. so far?

sorry son, i have a lot more questions to ask but next time na lang.........

love you.
mom

That's so awesome that you're learning the local language! How cool would that be to put on a resume, too. "I know Moore, a local African language!"
