Back to Swaziland

The khumbi that dropped us off returns to our door step, we gave them a lot of extra money so that it is just us in the khumbi and we get literally door to door service and avoid that crazy bus rank.

And we return to Pirate pizza for two more super size pizzas YUMICIOUS. (the is my word for great food its Yummy and Delicious combined)

At the bar at the backpackers we meet and hangout with some PCV’s from Botswana. The Peace Corp really is kind of like a fraternity/sorority once you’re a part of it, you really make some great friends and have an instant connection with someone just cause we all gave up our lives in the US to go to the foreign countries and even though each persons service is radically different based on culture, country, terrain, a person’s sex, rural vs towns, all of those and more. We all just have a connection.

  1. I agree! There will be a lot of connection in September in Washington D.C. for the big celebration of Peace Corps.
