Well I have like 10 minutes online. We are in lilongwe and just getting our bank accounts set up and stopped in the Peace Corps office. Tina and I are learning Chitenbuka which means we'll be in the north. Right now we live in a village in a mud it with a thatch roof. It is rather hot here which surprisingly makes me a selfish jerk. I get to a point where I just get snotty with people because...I don't know, just because.
Its like everything here has to do with the little things. Little things annoy me like, why is the truck 10 minutes late; why is the language class at a different place today; why can't I find my toothbrush. And it flips me out. It gets me a bad mood and I loose perspective of why I'm here. But then it is the little things that are just awesome like My students want to take picture with me on his camera (I don't even know if it had film in it); my host family's son's face lights up when I toss a bouncey ball at him: my host mother looks at me like I am giving her an extravagant gift and it is a bunch of 4 carrots.
Life is simple here. You have what is in the village and what is in the village is all there is. Days drag by, and weeks shoot past. We miss everyone back home. Thank you for the posts on the blog it is very very good to hear from people. Shane you make me laugh, and I bet we are the best 2 man somersault team in the business (haven't seen any Malawians though). I hope Apple Butter was fun if you did it, and thanks giving goes well.
