Our week long site visit was a smashing success. We are looking forward to our village and working with our counterparts over the next 2 years. More details to come.
Last night we returned to Segou the regional capital and were warmly welcomed at a hotel restaurant by current volunteers. Segou has far more amenties than we had expected -- pizza for dinner last night! Granted it tasted a little bit like Swiss cheese on a cracker...it was pizza none the less.
Hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day. We didn't wear green...just a lovely layer of dust.
We will be in touch.
