Counterpart & internet & off I go

Finally got my phone internet working and connecting my computer to it so I can surf the web and update the world on my work and adventure. So it has been just over a month and a lot has happened.

But tomorrow is a big day cause I go for the first time the city I will be living in.

I also met my counterpart, who I will be working with for the next two years, Dennis. An older guy who works fighting HIV/AIDS every day all day. And I will be doing that also. Although, not officially, I have been moved over to working as an NGO developer not just a straight up Health Educator, it definitly fits my talents as an organizer better.

I will be away for 6 days, so check back at the end of next week to here more. Just as I am caught up here , I will get behind again.

Off to Nglangano I go
