My home in Velezizweni

I’m the only white person for miles and miles! I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to say that again in my life 🙂 . I made it though training and have been at my permanent site for just over a week now. My two years of service have officially started! I’ve made my hut into a home and have been spending a lot of time with my lovely family. I purchased a bed, stoven (hot plate/ small oven), and a refridgator! My family let me barrow a few items that I am very greatful for. Here is my place!

Just a quick update this time.. but I am reading a lot and found a quote that I really liked and identified with.

” I felt that somehow I belonged here, I really did, but I could have been in the Congo for how unfamiliar it felt. Staying in a colored house with colored women, eating off their dishes, lying on their sheets, it was something I wasn’t against, but I was brand-new to it, and my skin had never felt so white to me.”
