Pictures — Finally!
Posted by Igor Popstefanija on October 16, 2008
The internet here is really slow so I’ve been neglecting to upload any pictures. Below is a picture of me in my new lavalava and one of our group out at a chinese restaurant.
So far training has been a lot of fun. Monday was a holiday, so we went to the beach all day. Then on tuesday we had water safety training which involved snorkeling in the reef. Who says the peace corps is tough…
Next week we are headed to the village, where we will be staying with a host family. I won’t be able to avoid eating fish while there.
Oh! and I’ve been given a Samoan name: Koa. It means “Warrior” and “Rooster.” Igoa would have been a more suitable transliteration, but it means “name” so that might have gotten a bit confusing. I like Koa though, and it actually seems to be sticking.
