I ni su! That’s good evening in Bambara, the language I’ll be mastering (fingers crossed!) over the next 2 years.
Today was my last full day at Tubaniso (the Peace Corps training center) and tomorrow I head out to a village close by to meet my Malian host family!!
I’ll be staying in the village for the next two weeks — spending time with the family for meals and in the evening, and attending intensive language and cultural training during the day with a handful of other PCVs. My next post will certainly provide more “hands-on” stories and experiences. I’m looking forward to sharing more in this space.
I might be a bit absent from the blog for a couple of weeks, but I’ll be back to Internet on July 21, if not before.
World Cup pick: The Netherlands.
p.s. – apologies for the brevity…many PCVs to one computer!
