So not knowing French, kinda a problem. Not knowing Jula, kinda another problem. Having French translated into French, wow. My head is spinning. My first week in village has been a battle with memorization. I used to thing that remembering I parked near B15 at the airport was hard. Haaaaaa. What’s hard is when your counterpart expects you to be able to introduce yourself in Jula to the community. N togo ko Adelaide. Simple. Saying, “I am very excited to work with you during the next 2 years,” isn’t so simple in Jula, nor French for me!

I’m loving the gardens. Let us know what is growing. Peace. Love. Rasta. Sorry, couldn’t help it. I love the girls’ little dreads.
