Ok, I can't figure out how to turn these pictures the right way so you all are just going to have to turn your heads sideways. The first picture is basically all of the kids under the age of 12 in my village, waiting to be given their presents for Three Kings Day. It was kind of a madhouse, but really fun. The second picture is a dog and her puppies that live near me... I may be getting one of them for myself but that depends on whether the family lowers the price. Right now they want to charge me 1000 pesos for the puppy, but that's really expensive so I'm not sure if it will work out or not. Things are going well here overall; I am getting lots of interviews done for my community diagnostic and starting to work with the youth group here in town. I'm starting to teach an English class this Saturday, which I am nervous for but I think it will work out. I've been working pretty hard on creating a curriculum, although from what I hear from older volunteers it might not end up being of any use. I'm adjusting pretty well to life in my site, excited for some visitors! I will write more later... I'm in the capital now and another volunteer is going to use my computer for a bit.
