Hello !

Due to the civil unrest and continued chaos in Haiti, my departure was delayed for a third time. I decided to request an alternate placement and have received news that I will be departing for Senegal West Africa on March 15, 2005. My official job title will be:  'Urban and Peri-urban Agriculture Extension Agent'. This means that I will most likely be living within city limits and traveling 20-30 km (on my bike!) to outlying communities to work with local farmers. Training will occur in the coastal city of Thies for the first two/three months, then I will be moved to another location that will depend greatly on my language skills and agricultural knowledge.

My limited experience with the French language will be helpful bien sur,  however the language primarily taught during training will be Wolof.

The delays have been difficult, however it has been wonderful spending time at home.  I'm car-less and penny-less, but excited and ready for an adventure.
