Hey guys! I made it! I got in late last nite, and even though I managed to sleep for a good portion of both flights, I still fell asleep right away. Wow do I ever miss you guys..... It's so quiet, there's hardly any students here right now. Apparently some arrived but have gone travelling for a bit, but there are a lot still to come. But this other student from Chad told me that there's an internet cafe 5 mins from rez so I came right away (that's where I am right now haha, anyways....)
So Africa is completely different from Canada, in case you had any doubts. Completely. Different. I have 6 pages of notes already from my adventures, and I've done basically nothing. I'm quite lonely actually, but once Monday comes and I can actually do stuff, like get their money, I should be fine.
Alrighty, so here's some details so far. It's half tropical looking and half desert looking....2 completely different landscapes I know, however, they are combined here. There's no hot water I've discovered, so cold showers for the next 10 months. I'm getting a roommate from Ottawa tonight. I saw wild lizards running around when I went for a walk this morning. Laundry facilities=sinks. The rez is a square building that has an open courtyard in the middle.
I'm running out of computer time, but I just really wanted to say hi. I have to figure out how to send picturess still; I'm trying. Miss you guys!! Write me.
Lots of love,
