Around 3pm it started to rain. I was supposed to meet a bunch of people at 4 to exchange digital photos on our computers, but I didn't have the ambition to go out into the rain....so being "bien intègre". (If it's raining, everything shuts down and people go into hibernation.) In the State's I would have went, it's just rain. Here, the red dirt sand paths turn into an ice rink of slippery clay muck
Katie arrived chez-moi around 5pm. She was "lost" looking for Theresa's house. So, I had to go out in the rain anyway. While I was out, I decided to do some going away gift shopping for members of my family. Go figure, searching for sunglasses in the rain is not an easy task.
Finally arrived back home, rinsed off my extremely dirty feet, ate dinner, watched the cook make pot/pâte, and then decided to go to the cyber one last time...I had to send an email updating everyone about my new life as a PCV. This was the last time available to do it, as I am leaving in the AM and there is no internet in my new community.
AAAAGGGGGHHHH!!!!! The cyber is so frusterating. I was there for 3 hrs! and for the sum of 1 hr, the connection was not working. That means I was just sitting there doing absolutely nothing. When the connection was working, it was taking about 5-8 mins to load a page...things took forever to accomplish. I'd probably still be there now if the current hadn't been cut (ack!). On the bright side, I talked the worker there into cutting an hour off of my bill due to the horrid connection.
Oh, so not looking forward to moving tomorrow....the process of moving, that is.
