DJ Jazzy Ash

Although gallavanting around the country and eating gobs of food that did not include fish and/or rice with my parents was undoubtedly fun, the parental units have departed and once again left me all by myself in a scary, sweltering country. All good things come to an end, I suppose. Hopefully in the next couple days my parents will post a blog about their visit and impressions of Senegal and my little life in it.

So I am back in my village and diving right back into work (ha ha). Today was our biweekly radio show that us newbies have taken over and today we did it all on our own. I got a little soundboard training today and you are reading the blog of the new voice of senegalese radio. (Dont get too excited. I think the station covers only a 30km or so radius). I get to wear headphones and everything. I was fading in, fading out, and blowing the mind of every senegalese listener with my spunk and broad knowledge of health matters. The guys that work at the radio station kept walking past the door flashing me their thumbs up.

The weather has taken a turn for the worse and the heat grows fierce. I am literally moist at this moment, and probably will be for all the moments in the forthcoming 8 months. I love this country!
