As i have said so many times before, i have such a hard time sitting down and finding only one thing to write about. I could literally sit and write (although i'd MUCH prefer to talk in person... and have a drink) for hours and hardly give justice to everything that I am doing here.

My dad says, "Chose one story and write about it." How can i chose a single story to write about when last weekend i went swimming in a waterfall, monday I was at the market drinking Chook (i'll explain sometime) with some local friends, or how i'm on a team of 4 who is giving business advice to 2 teens who have their own restaurant. I could literally sit here and write for an hour on the amazing African sun sets (anyone who has ever been in this country will know what i am talking about! There is something different about the way the sun sets here. I'm not sure if it the lush green background, if it is the amount of color that is in the sky, or something totally different that i can't quite put my finger on. I literally sit outside every night in total amazement, not even being able to read my book, at the beauty that is the sun while setting.) Then on top of that there is the amazingness that is my daily life. I catch myself thinking of things as normal (like the lizard i had to chase out of my room last night). There is just too much!!!

This upcoming week I will be at my post in Kara (look it up on google). I am so excited to see the house that i will be living in for the next 2 years (the rent on a 2 bedroom house that a current PCV (peace corps volunteer) lives in with living room and kitchen (no electricity or water) is 12,000 CFA (about $24 dollars) a month. Yes! You think about that when you are drinking your $12 martini, Ben! You are half way there to a new house.)

I just realised that it is almost 7pm! I must get home to eat dinner.

Sorry i havn't sent email. I havn't been able to get into my in box for a couple weeks now. :) Internet is SO bad here.
miss you all!

Mom here. How nice to hear more of your stories. Even though you're a great speaker, you know, you're also a pretty good writer. You definitely convey a picture and a feeling.

Speaking of pictures...are you taking a lot? When will we be able to see them? Could you possibly put them on a disk and send some to us? We'd love to see some pictures of you, the people you're with, and all the places you talk about.

We love telling everybody about you being in Africa, including me when I speak in Hebrew. How do I say Peace Corps in Hebrew?

We'll be anxious to hear about your new life and work in Kara (was that the name?...we'll go back to your message and then look it up).

Much love!!!
Mom

Hey Aaron!

Wow. I really look forward to reading your postings when YOU ARE ABLE to get online! It sounds like you are just living the most increadible life right now in Africa! I am def living vicariously through you when I read about your stories.

I was at Barnes and Noble the other day buying some books. I ALMOST got you one... but just wasnt sure you'd like it. So, if you have any requests, I'd love to send you something! Even though I havent seen you since France (man, you missed out when I visited the east coast... what a blast!) I love having friends all over the world.

So, take care and keep the updates coming! You are awesome and I LOVE that you're out there making a difference and broadening your experiences.

Cheers,
Gretchen Kurz (all the way in Seattle!!)
