Yesterday we finally got our site announcements! The big PC wait is over, finally! I know where I will be settled for the next two years, and next week I shall visit my site for four days-exciting! Though I will miss my host family I have now. 😦
I can’t give you specifics about where I will be, because PC has its policies. Apparently we’re soft targets for terrorists….so no location is given here. I can tell you that I will be in Northwest province, but near Northern Cape. So a bit away from Pretoria and where I am now. My shopping town is Vryburg, but that’s as much as I will say here. If you are dying to know where I am, shoot me an email.
I have several PCTs (soon to be PCVs) that are stationed near me, which is pretty awesome. One will live about 10km away, and another about 30km away. The others are a bit farther out, but still close. Oh, I’m pretty close to the Botswana border-I envision a trip there in my future… And I can use my Setswana there as well, apparently. Though it is a bit different than SA Setswana.
I have 2 schools, although I was only given information on one of them. That one happens to be an upper primary school (not sure what that means) and is looking for someone to help with English, economics/accountancy, and computers. I shall likely not be helping much with economics and accountancy, but you never know!
My house is said to have electricity, but no running water. There is a tap in the yard though, which is a plus. There are 3 adults and 7 children at my home-shoooo! A big family, and lots of people to talk to! 🙂 I have my own room/area with a separate exterior door though, so I’m not actually in the house.
Well, I will tell y’all more when I get done with my site visit next week. Til then, go siame,
