Hey all!

Ive made it through my first 2 weeks in site.  Things here are pretty good.  There is a great group of volunteers up in my area.  It has been nice to have some people to show me around - all the good places to shop and eat.  Then of course the essentials like the bank and the super.  I still have a few things to find like the post office and the bike store since I now have a bike - I got it last night!  It makes getting around so much easier already, just gotta get myself a lock so I can take it when I go into town. 

I have a lot of potential projects.  Its just a matter of getting to know my community and figuring out what takes priority.  My work starts in the local school...its going to be a definite challenge.  Its hard to know where to start because everything in training is so structured and now its like...you go find the work!  There are a lot of community things to work on and with the other volunteers around I can collaborate with them on the projects theyve already started.  Its nice to have something to keep me busy while Im still trying to find my niche in the community.  Ive already got plenty of requests to teach English and another volunteer who is leaving in August asked me if Id be willing to take over his classes. 

Im going to attempt to post some photos, well see if I can get them to upload or not...things are kinda slow at the moment!  Miss you all...hope you are enjoying the updates!
