WOW! I actually got to sleep in today! I woke up at 8, but didn't get out of bed until 9. Classes didn't start until 10am b/c it's Saturday (yes, we still have stuff to do on Saturdays). It's sad to think that I think of 9 as sleeping in now....back in the days of college, sleeping in, was 1 or 2pm...LOL.

At "class" we worked on the presentation we are going to be giving to our Homologues on Monday. (A "Homologue" is the main person I'll be working with in my new community.) I'm excited to meet my Homologue; I hope he (or she) is cool... For the presentation, I'm in the skit group...we are putting on a skit about living with Host Family's-what we've learned and how we've changed our habits since we first arrived. I played the role of the "Enfant".

After our class stuff, I didn't go home for lunch. I didn't know how long we'd have class, so I told my cook that I wouldn't be home for lunch. A small group decided to cook something at the building our classes are held. We went to the marche and bought stuff. We made a peanut-sauce rice stir-fry thing with a lot of veggies. It was really good.
