How yu didu?

Today we got back to training at 7:30 am this time. It was a long day of learning different things and I felt so tired from the weekend off! haha By now my feet are pretty much stained brown from the dirt we are constantly kicking up as we walk! It's kind of amazing, haha.  I realize that I am still completely in the vacation part of this experience because we are living the good life! We are fed 2 times a day and have a hotel WITH electricity, AC, and HOT water and EVEN CABLE! It's gonna be a HUGE shocker on Thursday when we get to our host families! We're getting spoiled! But I will take it while it lasts!!

The morning's meetings were a lot of talking, which was kind of tiring. But we played soccer at lunch and it kinda livened everyone up for the afternoon sessions! We had meetings with our Program Managers to finalize our placements, and also medical interviews to make sure everything was ok before we left the HQ for 5 weeks. But while people left for those individual meetings, there was also a talk going on...so, of course, I was LATE to my first meeting with my program director! What a bad first impression!!! We were supposed to come back & tap the person after us to go & I was never tapped by the lady before me & ended up showing up 15 minutes late. FAIL! But it was all fine anyway... I was nervous I made a bad first impression..Oh well, no worries!

Our afternoon session was 2 1/2 hours of Kriol! It was SO exciting! I love Kriol! Everything is exactly the way you talk!

Gud maanin. Mee nayhn dah Mallory. I kohn frahn New York. I single. Mee no got no pikni! Tek kyaa!

Good morning. My name is Mallory. I come from New York. I'm single. I don't have any children. Take care!

hahaha! It's great!

I've been spoiled today with the amount of internet I've had!! But I'm glad I could update my blog and fill everyone in!  Everyone here is so wonderful and SO EDUCATED! It's amazing to get all these different mindsets on the world, cultures, politics, and everything else imaginable into one room! It's definitely broadening my horizons....

Ok, I'm off to grab a taco at the Shack! Feel free to send me mail!!  I would LOVE IT! lol
