Ok here comes round two.
Picture number one is what my laundry days look like. Every saturday (depending on the weather) I do laundry which can be anywhere from a one to three hour process, not including drying time. We do have a washing machine, but it involves dragging it outside, filling it up with the hose, and later draining it and dragging it back inside. Plus the clothes still need to be rinsed twice by hand.
Picture two is of the bedroom half of my room. You can see my lovely army green mosquito net.. Not nearly as princess-like as the pretty white ones. Plus its stiff and scratchy.
The next picture is of the kitchen side of my room. The green cabinets my host family is generously letting me borrow for two years. Beats cooking on the floor which is what I was doing before.
Next is a picture of me (with hair grown out enough to disguise the atrocious haircut I got right before swearing in). I’m wearing a necklace I bought when I went to town with two other volunteers.
Lastly is a picture from a wedding I went to. It shows the giant cooking pots used to prepare the food for the wedding. Also the woman dressed in the traditional outfit is the principal for one of my schools.
More to come soon!
