My days are pretty slow. When there is nothing going on, I play my guitar, or read. I'm really enjoying the slow pace. It's too hot to go any faster. It's hot and humid, but definitely tolerable. It's been fun walking around town. There are 4 other women in my Peace Corps group. They are the only other white people in town. I feel like Owen Wilson! Everybody that we see is very friendly and interested in us. Especially the kids. There was a small posse that followed us home tonight from the market. I'm super impressed with their English skills. I'll find out more soon when I start working in the schools.
Language training started today. I'm learning Waray-Waray. This translates to Nothing-Nothing. So what am I learning. . . It's actually coming along pretty well. Our instructor is doing a great job. I think Aaron Santi has been talking to her about posting objectives. We are working in a small room with pretty tile, and about 4 fans going all the time. It's a very intimate setting.
Thanks for all your comments and emails. I appreciate the thoughtful words. It helps!
Love ya 'all

ps - I heard from one of the Peace Corps volunteers that her daughter was able to see her house on Google Earth. I'll find out more details, and get you in on the loop.
