Christmas Eve

So more swimming, sunburning, a really nice walk on the beach with Liz, then sleeping on the beach and meeting PCV’s from Moz. They were all mostly straight from college, their training was pretty radically different than ours, 1st they got a lot more days off, were housed near a city and got to hang out at night together, (My group all had to be in their home stead house each night by dark.) Their training town has been the same is the town on the other side of the border from Swaziland were we crossed.

So for Christmas Eve, the Swaziland crew hosts a party in are awesome beach house. I get a fire going when it is very windy, never an easy thing to do, the beer and liquor flows, I realize that I think the party in me has pretty much gone away, even though I drink now. As most all got drunk, I found myself not interested in drinking. A first for me especially in a situation like that in the past I would have been the party animal. Instead, just relaxed sat back and had several great conversation with the Moz PC girls.
