My Uganda Address

I do have my address if you're interested in writing. I put it under my profile on your right. It wil change in 3 months so check it before you send me anything. And please do send me anything. Literally anything, just remember it could take a month before I get it. Otherwise, I've found a couple of fellow PCV's blogs who are also going to Uganda: http://nepc.blogspot.com http://rachelinuganda.blogspot.com/ Today we spent the entier day in training. Just basic stuff, "what does 'development' mean?" "how do you stay safe?" Case studies, etc. They did give us about $175 of 'walking around' money to spend at our leisure for food, cab fares, drinks, etc. I was advised to keep some of it as it will come in handy in Uganda. It is an interesting makeup of our group. There are 2 married couples going and 2 married women who are with us. It's difficult for me to imagine being separated from a spouse for the 2 years, but their kids are grown and this is something that they really really want to do, and I deeply admire them for taking it on. Truly. Tomorrow it's more training in the morning and then we have a Peace Corps 45 Years Event we have to dress up for and go to in Boston. And then Sunday, we leave for Uganda!!!

How cool that I discovered your blog! I'm in the mists of planning my own East Africa adventure and will be looking forward to hearing your stories about discovering Uganda!
