Peace Corps Blog

This is a blog of my experience as a Peace Corps volunteer, working in South Africa. My job title is a capacity builder, which means I help increase the effectiveness of a local NGO that does AIDS/HIV related work.

Quick Update

I am writing from an internet cafe in Zeerust (the big town near my homestay site for the training period). We decided to come into town for an adventure this Saturday. Keep in mind that the "exciting town" is a mere one road and about twelve blocks long, but compared to our training villages, it feels like quite a change.

Training is quite an experience. They keep us very busy with language and technical training, but my home stay family is wonderful and I am having a very relaxing time, all things considered.

Once I am able to use my own laptop to post, I will write a much longer entry detailing some of the excitement and some of the adventures of the training experience.
