It’s FESPACO! It is the West African International Film Festival. It was started in 1969 and is the largest film festival in Africa. It is held every odd number year. So, I came into the Capital for a few days. There are people from all over here and the city packed!
Every time I come into the city it is a very overwhelming experience. Pus, the city is soo expensive. When I come in I try to do everything that I can’t do in village like check my e-mail, and go food shopping, and eat real food…. ya know the good stuff. I usually never have time to do it all…
Things are going very well right now for me. I love village and the slow pace and relaxed atmosphere. I am working on my Etudie (which is a study of my village) and I am pretty much done I just need to find time to write it. It has been a very interesting process. I am finding out soo much about my village that I would have never known.
The next few weeks are going to be super busy for me. Our village is doing vaccinations and then I have mid-service training for a month. After I get done with my mid-service training I am allowed to start doing real training on my own. So I plan to start going out into the village and doing talks on different health topics that the village is having problems with like malnutrition or malaria… I also plan to go into the school and teach basic hygiene.
Thanks again for the mail!!! I love it!
Well that’s all!!!
