It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

Hey hey everyone, I am back again. I promise, next Saturday, I will post pictures of ma chambre, ma famille peut-etre, and many other things.

Peace Corps is hard. They drive you and you don't get much personal time. I have laid new ground rules for my independent learning time, as I need more study time. Things are well, my family is great, I haven't gotten sick yet, etc. Just need to put more time in. I knew this wasn't gonna be easy. Hell, I got a chemistry degree, I can do this!

I miss cold drinks, that's it! Lot's of people, the world over, don't get to open a refrigerator and pull out cold water. This trip has already changed me. The first of many changes for me no doubt!

It's great to hear from you! I'm sure that you will face many challenges but you can do this...and you are. I'm really proud of you and very inspired by what you are doing. It seems that we were just sitting in French class together. And here you are...in West Africa!

I look forward to hearing more about your incredible journey with the Peace Corps. As always, you are in my thoughts and I'm wishing you the best.

Sincerely,
Bernadette
