Ugh. I am back in the med unit in Cotonou, this time because I have a Urinary Tract Infection. (They are the worst EVER, but luckily easily treatable) I feel really bad about having to miss yet another day of model school, but c'est la vie, I guess.
Teaching is going fine; this week we had to write/administer both a quiz and a test for the kids. The kids in my class are learning things like "I am from Porto Novo. She is from America." and "The pen is on/under/in the desk," etc. It is kind of fun and surprisingly a bit challenging to go back to the basics of English.
We have has a few more people ET (Early Terminate), bringing our total down to 56 (we were originally 64). It is a bummer, but, I guess Peace Corps isn't for everyone. Not too much else is going on... I'm getting a dress and skrit made at the tailor this week, also today I ordered the "beef" at a buvette and was served cow skin. Declicious. (and by delicious I mean DISGUSTING) Today we also watched the testimonials of volunteers who have contracted HIV during their service, which was quite depressing (but easily avoidable). Also got a package this week from my friend Sarah that had stuff to hang on my walls, gum, and chocolate!! I would love some more packages like this :)
That's all for now, I'll let you know if my UTI gets better soon!
