I'm looking forward to starting the next year/few years at the Bakanja Center in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo.  It was great getting to know my fellow SLMs this summer at orientation in NY/NJ.  Hopefully we will all have an enriching experience at our mission sites.

Right now I seem to be stuck on a mountain (and going a bit stir crazy)...
The embassy is still processing my visa and the expected August departure date has been rescheduled to mid-September.

At least I will have a couple more weeks to butcher practice my French before arrival.

Updates pending on the other side...
