August! Did you realize that it's August? I really don't even remember it turning to July, which is why I'm slightly shocked that it's over already. In the past month, I have...
recovered from a nasty virus I picked up on the way to Tanzania
moved into my old house in Dar
traveled to Kenya for conference
traveled back to Tanzania, realizing along the way that I seriously have to start thinking Tanzanian again (there are so many things I forgot while in the States!)
packed up all my stuff that got mixed together with my roommates two years ago
bought a car
learned how to shred a coconut and make coconut milk
started helping with a three week orientation course of kids whose families just arrived in country
remembered what it feels like to have power go out three times a day, internet not work, phone companies change their rates without telling you, and a million other little things that make up "normal" life here in Tanzania
oh yeah, and ate. slept a little. the basics. :P
I wish I had time to sit down and post all my thoughts from the past month. I've written some posts, but alas, no internet meant you never saw them. I'll work on getting them up soon enough. In the meantime, I'd like to leave you with a few images of the past month - when I've remembered to take my camera out.
