Wow. Less than six months to go, and already I am a bit nostalgic for this country and my experience here without even leaving yet. I think it is because my good friend and fellow volunteer in my site finishes and leaves for the ... Read more >

Xmas 09

My Christmas day was spent on the road, waiting for a guagua that would take me back home, but being that it was a holiday, the buses were not very regular or timely, like most things in this country. We took a carro publico and little guagua to ... Read more >

Moved into my new house and it is a definite step up from my old neighborhood. For starters, I have water most of the time and so I don’t have to buy my water off the truck anymore. But, I still store water in about 4 different large tanks for when ... Read more >

Last Wednesday marked a year for being in my site. No big celebrations, just mentioned to my host family that I’ve known them now officially for a whole year. Then I bought my stuff in their colmado and I lugged all of it back to my house. Thankfully ... Read more >

Funny how it took me five months to finally post pictures of my house, (nicely decorating it with some family pictures) and now within a month I am moving. I hate to leave this house, despite the lack of water and the (sometimes, depending on the heat) ... Read more >

One year in country, and what a year it has been. Looking back, I would´nt change any of the experiences, no matter how hard or frustrating it has been. Sometimes I feel as if this trip has aged me 5 years. Just one year and three more months to go - ... Read more >

Stormy lonely night.

Crazy stormy night last night. Lightning lit up the sky so bright it felt as if it was coming into my house, and thunder so loud it sounded as if it was right above my head. Of course, there was no luz and so it made my Thursday night sitting in the dark ... Read more >

Chisme. I need to back track a couple of months on my chisme.....I did find a place to live, and so my new two bedroom house and indoor bathroom is about a 10-15 walk outside of the middle of town, but I love my barrio. Not many people do – when I tell ... Read more >
