So I received yet another document from the lovely Peace Corps, this one including details necessary to actually get me into the country and live: “Don’t drink the tap water in Kenya.” Some updates that concern you, my lovely blog readers, include the fact that I will no longer be training in Embu, as expected. Instead, I will apparently be training in Loitokitok. I get to move from the base-ish area of Mount Kenya to the base-ish area of Mount Kilimanjaro. That’s exciting!
Also, as for communication: there is a cybercafe in Loitokitok however it is painfully slow and most trainees wait until they get to their service site before they attempt the internet. Take this information as is, but if I drop off the face of the earth for a good two months (I get to my site around January 9, 2009), then I apologize ahead of time.
That’s all I have for now. More information as it comes in.
