8am: Language classmates now and Franck is the teacher again.
10:30am: Post week visit discussion time. Sounds like Admin is going to make a few visits out to my house to check up on the progress....hope so.
12:30pm: Lunch, ate Rice & Beans; took "repo" (relaxation time) writing emails and blog entries.
3pm: Language class again
5pm: Took a "break" at the bar, had a Sprite, for the record. I didn't want my breath to smell like beer before going to
6pm: Tutoring....studied the "Imparfait".
7pm: Pot (really spelled pāte) with a good veggie sauce...carrots, green peppers, onion, and green beans...someone in the family must have went to Cotonou and brought back veggies for me. J (pot is the #1 Beninese meal, it is eaten every night by most families. Usually, it is served with a fish and tomato paste sauce.)
8pm: Cyber until 10:30. On my way there, a block from home, I ran over a corn stalk with my bike. It was dark and the corn stalk with is the middle of the path; I didn't see it. It got all tangled up in my chains and rear tire. I pulled "all"/most of it out, and it seems to be working ok, but not a fun thing to have to fix in the dark.
