It would be sooo cool if you could make it here, I know that you would love it. I think that Africa is going to be some place that I will be for a looooong time. I will keep you posted on the book.
I am so happy that you found the site and me on facebook. That is awesome, now we can really keep in touch.
Hey Darcy and Sasha, I am glad you guys are checking it out. I will try and keep it updated with adventures as I am sure that there will be many.
Hello guys. I am so happy that you are checking out my site. I will keep the stories coming as long as the adventures flow...doesn't look like there will be a shortage anytime soon.
Hey Kevin, nice to see you are checkin me out. I will try and write as often as I can more probably now cause I am not teaching yet but the most interesting parts always happen in the beginning anyways.
It is all in the life of a female traveller. I am sure that by the time I am done all of my African travels I won't even think about sitting down to cry anymore.
I am so sorry that we didn't get together, I would say save that wine but there will be others. I will keep you posted on the stuff I need though and may take you up on the offer. Hopefully pictures will be up soon.
You don't know how close I was to losing it. Good thing I was more mad than scared and upset. Oh well all in a day in Dakar...since being here I have heard worse stories. One of the teachers was stuck in the airport for three days in Dakar and finally had to go overland and it was his first time here. I would have cried then for sure. I hope all is well with you my friend and if things don't go well there you should think about Africa you would love it.
I am so happy that you are checking out my stories. I hope to keep it interesting. Who would have thought back in the day in Redwater that I would one day be here.
Don't worry this address has not been leaked to any former students so no editiing is necessary on this one. I will let you know all the details after my "reggae dance party"...it is looking like there will be many in my future. Love you to lady.
I am not sure if the scooter is a go any time soon as the house I found is quite close to the school but don't worry it will happen, cause you need some mode of transportation here and it is too hot to pedal!!! So far I love the people here but I haven't been getting too involved with the community and the locals.
Going to check out another house today...keeping my fingers crossed. I will keep you posted.
I have to apologize for the lack of stories. First year is crazy so I have been told and I am experiencing it first hand. I have more story to go along with the first orphanage story so get the kleenex the next time you check back. It was very sad and I had a hard time holding back the tears while I was holding these amazing babies and toddlers.
I am glad that you are enjoying my writing, and thanks! I am having fun sharing my stories and they just seem to be coming, besides this is way better than keeping a personal journal.
I really think that you need to start planning to come here. I don't have a bathtub in my house so no worries on Leo drinking the water!!! I miss you but I am glad that you are reading my adventures. Give everyone a hug from me and I can't wait to show you pictures of the fabric I just bought. I was going to make it into a dress but I don't want to cut it....I think you know how that feels. Love you too.
I am going to be the photo journalist as soon as I move in so everyone can see. I did forget to mention that my house is also directly across the street from a fantastic Indian restaraunt as well. I love it here and two years gives you enough time to come visit!!!
I will try. I have just been really busy and the internet has been super slow......sorry!
Hey my friend, I look forward to chatting with you soon too. First day is on Wed so I will keep you posted. I am looking forward to seeing your site when you get classroom pictures up.
I am sorry still going to find out about the monkeys. Apparently there is a park with tons of them in them here and if you take peanuts they will come down and eat out of your hands (I was told...not impressed. No monkeys were harmed in the adventure though. I can't wait to write more but you have to have patience as I have little time to write (busy planning).
Here you go Cole.I will try to keep you guys posted more often,have patience trying to find that balance between personal and work lives.
I am so happy that you checked out the house. Isn't it great. Spare room sure is for you. Try and call me when you get up in the morning? See now you can phone me first thing in the morning and it won't affect me at all.
