You are probably wondering….

Some information about my service:

  • My 1st 3 months there I will be in Thiès, Senegal
    and doing technical, language, cross-cultural, health and safety
    training before being moving to my placement within the country for the
    next 2 years of service.
  • While there I will be working with my Senegalese partners to help
    establish gardens, improve soil conditions, integrate techniques and
    crops if possible. (I also hope to doing bee work as my secondary
  • I will most likely be living in a dirt hut with a tin or metal roof,
    with no running water and electricity (I will purchase a solar charger
    there to power my electronics)
  • The local climate is tropical
    with well-defined dry and humid seasons. The dry season (December to
    April) with annual rainfall of about 24 in occurs between June and October when maximum temperatures average 86.0 °F and minimums 75.6 °F (this varies as you move inland)
  • French speaking with a few other dialects and is dominantly Muslim religion.

Cool things:

  • I
    can have visitors so you are ALL welcome to come visit!!!!!! (up to 2
    weeks, round trip tickets are about $1500 but you can live on $10 a day)
    I would love to see you in Senegal!
  • If you can’t visit you are more than welcome to send me a note,
    letter, email, or a package. My information is at the Contact Info page
  • I will learn lots of things of wonderful things (and I’m
    sure some not so wonderful things), meet some really cool people and
    some wonderful places.
  • I will be keeping a blog, even though postings might be once a month. But I hope to have pictures of all my crazy travels if nothing else.
  • I get a peacekeeping passport during service (which I think is green and an interesting tidbit)
