More PC training

So more training from the PC and my first time leaving site for an evening since arriving on birthday in late August.

First Day IST - all remaining PCV's of Group 8 are back together for a training. My plan for Bread was to put him in a kennel, but the hotel maintenence staff loved Bread and said I could put him in the shed if I got a crate.

So I walked over to the one and only Pet store in town and bought a small dog travel case. So for the next wk & half Bread gets more attention, Josh time and other PCV time then normal.

I am missing a lot of soccer practices for this training and will try to make Sunday's game.

HOT SHOWERS, YES. Even though I have running water and bathtub, I have forgotten what a shower felt like. Funny for almost all of the others the shower was even more dramatic in terms of comfort and cleaning.

  1. I understand the feeling of a hot shower. In Malaysia, the water for my shower came from a large tub on the roof. The sun kept the water warm..... during monsoon times, the water was cold.
