still alive.

I don’t have Ebola nor have I been caught up in Kenya’s civil unrest, though both of these things have come close enough to effect life here.  I am safe and well.  I had Chistmas with my host family in Luwero, who I lived with in my first three months in Uganda.  The day ended with us dancing calypso in the aisles of a supermarket…wonderfully random and fun.  It was such a memorable holiday despite it being the first time I was away from home on Christmas.  I celebrated an extremely quiet New Years’ Eve stargazing in the village before going to bed at 11pm– quite the contrast to starting off ’07 in New York City.

I haven’t written lately because I’ve been…busy!  This is a wonderful word for a PCV.  Busy.  Busy with work, even.  I will write at length about this wonderful development soon.  And maybe I can convince my upcoming vistors to write a guest blog or two while they’re here.  For now, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy 2008.  Be well!
