So I just realized that I haven't posted in, say, seven months, and apparently people actually read this. Sorry guys, I had no idea! I apologize profusely and promise to do a much better job. In fact, I have decided that I am going to write a book about my experiences. When I say book, I actually mean keeping track of what is going on in my Peace Corps life by writing it down. Because I seriously cannot believe that I have been in the DR for 15 months already, and I know that in a year or two I will be struggling to remember details about my life there that seem so everyday right now. So...keep your eyes peeled for my book. Maybe the NYT or the Post or even Oprah will hear about it and you'll see my mug on the cover of the book review. Maybe.
In other news, I'm back in the States for the holidays, and this picture pretty much sums up my favorite activity thus far--sleeping, particularly on other people's couches. It's great. There are no couches in the DR, at least not where I live, so I'm taking full advantage of all the cushy pieces of furniture I can get my hands on while I'm here.
