The Last Few Golden Weeks of Training

Hanging out with the kids in our training village compound.
The goal of this post is to let you all know that we are still alive! We survived our first experience with being sick here (everyone in our language class feel victim to the same unpleasant gastrointestinal illness), but we are feeling just fine now. We have just left our first Gambian host family and returned to Fajara to prepare for a visit to our permanent sites. Being in the crowded transit house is not that great, but there is electricity here in the big city and, thus, the store down the street has plastic bags of vanilla yogurt to suck on. Also, sometimes there is working internet! We will post again when the internet is faster.

Fo silaa kotenke (until the next road)!
