We leave for the Bamako bus station in 45 minutes to spend 5 days at our future site.
While we are there we will tour the village, meet the chief and size up our new housing to assure that everything is in fine working order. We have a housing checklist to review--tasks include making sure the door locks work and the walls don't have holes that would allow snakes or other creatures to set up camp with us, etc.
We will spend Friday night in the regional capital of Segou and will return to the PC training center on Saturday, March 19th. Signing off until then...
