So Im writing this e-mail over again because last night there was a power outage...it happens quite freqently in fact and usually it means a nice candle lit dinner with my awesome host family but this time it also erased my e-mail, the good news is that Im getting to know this keyboard a bit better...
So yes I found out where my site placement will be. I must admit I was a bit dissapointed when I found out. Here are the reasons why: I have electricy and running water. Also Im not really in a small village I have 3'000 people! Oh and yes its in the desert where it can reach 142 F! Also unforuntetly some of my closest friends that Ive made are placed far away...
Here is the good news though : because I am the third volunteer, I do not have to do any of the grunt work of researching or writing grants. I actually get to install the waste management system that they wanted with the money Peace Corps already got! Im so excited because this is what I am best at! On top of it all, they also have a new environmental club that wants to work more with theatre and the Womens group has not been worked with yet: This site placement seems to have been made for me. So Im really excited!
So again thank you so much to those who have been writing me e-mails. It really means a lot to me and Im sorry that I do not have the time or the patience with the keyboard to write each of you. I love you all!!
Send me letters and tea and purell!
love Desneige or Ngone my sister Diarra says hello!
