Are you dressing up this year? What as??
Have a blast!
|Can you find me? This was near the end of our intensive 3-month in-country training. See the only guy in a green shirt? I'm two rows back from him, standing behind the girl with a dark baseball cap on.|
|The front of my little mud brick house.|
|Inside, my desk where I worked on my project and my art.|
|Me, cooking in my kitchen. I brought all those spices from home, btw.|
|With my friend Chantal and her little girl. Chantal was a business woman who sold cafe au lait and fresh beignets at a makeshift stand on the side of the road leading to the hospital. She is the kind of entrepreneurial woman who would benefit from fundraisers like Candace is supporting.|
|And finally, here's me at the airport in Syracuse, NY, leaving on my life's greatest adventure. I'd been advised numerous times to use old Army duffel bags to pack my stuff in, but I wondered how I'd tell my bags from everyone else's. There were 45 other people leaving with me. So, I painted happy flowers on my bags. Locating them in a sea of olive green was never a problem!|
