Full Circle

Posted by Thryn on July 22nd, 2009 filed in Model School, Teaching, Training

I’m happy to report that Gabe and I are both parasite-free after our mid-service medical exams. After a few weeks vacationing in the decadent land of available cheese and hot showers (Europe) with our amazing friends and family who met us halfway around the world to bring me Junior Mints (among other things), we are back in Cameroon, helping train the new volunteers who swear in at the end of August. Sincere apologies for the run-on sentence. They are a good group–sharp and motivated. Last week model school opened and the trainees observed us teach just like we observed the volunteers and trainers last year. Now this week they began teaching real Cameroonian schoolchildren for the first time. Remember our first day teaching Model School last year? I do.

In other news, we may not have photos on the blog for a while…since our camera was stolen in Paris. Also the vegetable soup I made today is a touch too spicy. Next time I will use less red pepper.

    Sorry your camera walked away. You’ll have to practice word pictures for a while. Very glad you are safe and parasite free.
    Make the most of this next year.

    damn that red pepper!

    maybe next time you could add a little more water and salt, which could have saved the soup.
