that I received packages from:
the Zieglers, the Milams, and the Faucette's... to be opened when I return to my permanent site. (I'm in Pretoria now, on my way to a week-long training.) THANK YOU! CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK TO OPEN MY GOODIES!
I was without water the day I mentioned not going without for months (I'm NOT kidding)
I've survived three days of teaching two sections of 6th grade English, but am calling all primary/middle school teachers to immediately forward any tips regarding classroom management
I've found a way to travel to Pretoria that feels safer and is immensely more comfortable. But the true value was that not once, did I feel I was going to die. (More on this later!)
