I leave tomorrow at 5:40pm. I am debating on whether or not I should stay up tonight packing and splurge one last time on a movie and go see "Baby Mama". Now, don't make fun... it looks funny. Stupid, funny, but funny nonetheless. It would be a cold day in hell before that movie ever played in Christian Zambia, so I am sincerely thinking of jumping in on this one last opportunity to be as American as I can be and watch a totally mind-numbingly hilarious movie.
OK, for all the questions people keep asking me... Will I go straight into training once I get to Zambia and if so, how will they run training for one person? Answer: I have no idea. I have not spoken with my Country Director (the head of the Peace Corps in Zambia) since I've been here. Next question is, What is my address going to be once I get there? Answer: I have no idea. I will get an address once I get posted at my permanent site. The soonest that will most likely be, once again, I have yet to speak to my CD in Zambia, in 3 weeks. Once I get an address, I will post it on here, for sure. Last question is, will my phone number be the same when I return? Answer: No. It would have been the same if I hadn't lost my Zambian cell phone in the Lusaka International Airport when I was leaving to come to D.C. I know, I know, I lose EVERYTHING. Therefore, why be surprised that I lost that. Hopefully, however, unlike my address, I will get a new phone within the first few days of returning to Zambia. As soon as I get one, I will post my new number on here. Dialing will be the same, obviously, but I will have a new number, obviously, again.
I think I have fully updated everyone. Now, I must finish my laundry, pack a little, and try to digest the Ethiopian food I ate tonight that is stirring in my belly as I type. (It was delicious anyway.) Oh, and I tried to upload a pic on here, but it didn't work. Sorry. Let's see if these links work though...
