Community Based Training Commence!

My language group of 4 trainees leaves for Bayakh today for Community Based Training. The PC bus will take me to my host family compound (or as close as possible), drop me off with my bags including a gift of tea and sugar, and leave me alone with a working Wolof vocabulary of about 5 phrases.

I’ll be greeted by my host family who will give me a Senegalese name –hopefully one I can pronounce. We will stay with our host families 6 days and beyond that, I am unsure what to anticipate. It’s really hard to imagine what I will do to pass the time for 6 days unable to communicate. Some sites have electricity and others do not, but I’ll be out of touch for a while regardless.
