Tomorrow we’re leaving for our village stay. I’m not supposed give out any specifics on the blog, so I can’t say which village, but suffice it to say that it will be far more remote than the capital, Apia. The chances of any type of internet access is zilch, so this will be probably be the last post for a while.
So far in Apia we havn’t had too much of the rugged volunteer experience, but I think all that will change tomorrow. There won’t be any running water, and so they showed us how to bathe with a bucket. I’ve also been able to avoid eating fish so far, but at the village I’m going to eat whatever they serve me. The biggest adjusment though, they’re making me shave the beard.
I’m sure I’ll be fine though, and I’ll post some of the things I’ve eaten for those that are interested.
