Hurray, Hurray, we're on our way, we're off to great places, today is the day! So says the immortal Dr. Suess, and today, 40 new volunteers joining the ranks of Peace Corps Senegal are OFF to great villages around Senegal.
Kim, Ann Marie, Justin, and I have spent the last couple of days in our regional capital, Linguere, buying everything we need to install - buckets, mats, machetes - amidst a veritable Sahara sandstorm. Now, the hot, hot breezes will blow us out of town and into our respective sites. Wish us luck!
Looking off into the desert from the roof our regional apartment/office building in Linguere (which we are actually moving out of -- happily, we're transitioning to a larger house down the street!). This photo does justice to neither the amount of sand in the air nor the barrenness of the desert.
