This past weekend my former site mate finished his service, leaving me all alone in Agaro.. along with his CDMA internet device. So I’m online! I can’t promise this will mean more updates, but I’ll try. Thanks to everyone who has written so far. You’ve brightened my days, and insured a strong friendship with Agaro’s postal workers.
It’s been three months since I came to site. Hard to believe, it goes by so fast. Then again.. there were 2 weeks in there that involved no water. That time went by a little slower. But I’ve had a great time exploring the town and getting to know people. “You!” and “Farenji!” are starting to morph into various forms of my name. Kachi.. Kari.. Kateem. I enjoy their efforts. To be honest, the best thing about this town are the people. I can sit down at any one of a hundred coffee stands here and find interesting conversation. Most people are generous in their welcome and have given me a lot of insight. After only a few months, my perceptions continuously change, and I expect they’ll continue as I make myself at home.
