In Gogo

March 30th

Amy and I spent the day exploring her village. We retrieved her puppy from the family who was watching him while she was gone (he promptly ran back over there once he dug his way under the gate) and stopped to talk to her CSPS staff. We spent 30 minutes trying to find the vegetable section in her enormous marche, then finally asked for directions from someone she knew. We cooked green beans for lunch with couscous – I added pretty much every spice she had just to see what would happen, and it was surprisingly delicious. It was a lot of fun seeing her CSPS, talking to her staff, and just seeing another site and way of living here. Every volunteer and every site is different, so it's interesting to see how you each react to common situations. It's been fun visiting Amy, I'm almost sad to leave tomorrow! But the COS party will be a good time, and I'm looking forward to going back to village and (hopefully) getting things started up again.
