site announcements!

Just found out where I will be spending the next 2 years of my life in Senegal...Boke Salsalbe is my village in the northern region of St. Louis!! (north/eastern-ish of Senegal, right on the border of Mauritania) Just got finished being blindfolded, and then placed on a big floor map of Senegal on our sites. I'm SO excited about everyone that will be in the region, and the village I am going to!! It's great to finally know what to expect after PST and who I will be able to visit (in our stage at least plus the current PCVs). Will write more later if I have time! :)

Check it's near this town on Google maps (I can't find Boke Salsalbe exactly, but I know it's relatively close to Pete).

  1. Congratulations! I was a volunteer in Senegal (regions of Podor & matam) back in mid 90's. Best of luck and feel free to get in touch if you have questions - spent 4 years in Senegal and wife is Senegalese. Happy to try to pass on some wisdom and lessons learned (the hard way!).
