Sorry I’ve been gone for quite a long time, we’ve had some internet malfunctions at the workplace. We finally got it back working for the whole day—funny how not having internet makes you crazy. I’m gradually getting more work, (nothing important) but at least it’s something to do. The people I work with are great, and so fun to be around! Soon I will be hearing from my boss as to which project I will be working for the next year. I will keep you updated…
Last week I was involved in Kick4Life’s Training of the new coaches (TOC) for our curriculum. Because they wanted me to get a firm grasp of the curriculum and how we teach the material to the kids using games, I was trained with the fellow 16 coaches. Eight of them came from Maseru, and the other eight came from Leribe. It was an exhausting 8am-6pm week, but in the end, I was so glad to have met the coaches. They are all around my age, mostly older, but I really became close with a couple of the girls. Too bad some of my favorites live two hours away. But, I promised them that I would come to visit, and they promised that they were have me over to meet their mothers and they would cook me a special Besotho meal—sounds good to me!!
This past weekend, me and a small group went to a small village called Maylealea just to get away from the city and into more of the Mountain Kingdom. It was about an hour and a half drive, and the drive was picturesque desert mountains wherever you looked—it was beautiful. Because we were out in the middle of nowhere, and up about 8,000 ft elevation, the stars were incredible. I can’t think of how to describe them. I have never seen that many stars before in my life, and they felt so close. All-in-all it was a very memorable weekend, and I cannot wait to go back and explore more of the area!!
Peace, Love, and Pictures to come...PROMISE!
