I want to apologize for the lack of posts on my blog for the past few months, the internet at the training center takes frequent coffee breaks and when it does decide to work, its like watching a sloth cross the highway…I have posts and pictures and they will be up very soon.
A few brief highlights of my experience so far:
I am learning Sereer with two other volunteers
My site is at Ndorong-Sereer, a small rural town of 800-ish people. I am relatively close to mangroves and there are many monkeys wandering around and up to no good. Look it up on Google Earth!
We have finished our garden and even taught a garden demo, pics will be up soon!
I met my work partner from Ndorong-Sereer, he’s very motivated and eager to introduce me to the town.
I ride my family’s donkey on the regular and have been taking care of it for the past month. We’re on a first name basis.
I’m swearing in as a volunteer in two weeks!
More updates coming very soon, I promise.
