This is my life…
May 25, 2012
Hello everyone out there is the cyber world!
I know it has been awhile since I have written so let me fill you all in.
After Easter Vacation the teachers here on St Marie decided to go on strike. Other parts of Mada were already on strike and the teachers here wanted to show solidarity so they voted to go on strike too. After two weeks of no classes the teacher voted to start teaching again and that have been in effect since the middle of May. We have about 5 weeks left of teaching then 2 weeks of exams and then we are officially done for the year! Crazy that the first year of my Peace Corps service is almost done! Time has flown by, is seems just like yesterday that I go my invitation to come to Madagascar and was telling all my students at SLHS that I was coming here and promising to bring back lemurs for people.
Right now I am at a very fancy and expensive hotel on my island. They have free wifi so I have been coming here once a week to get my fill of the outside world. At this very moment I am looking out on the Indian Ocean and I can see the main island of Madagascar in the distance. I just had a margarita and I'm waiting for my hamburger, only the 2nd one I have had here on Madagascar. One thing that I don’t think I will ever get tired of is the view of the ocean and the sunsets here.
Peace, Love and a sunset with a hamburger… not a bad life <3
