Short post: An update

I visited Thaba Bosui (Mountain of the Night) last week. It's a historic place because it's where the country's founder, Moshoeshoe, founded the country.

Hey everyone!

Hope you're doing as well as I am.

Things are still going well here in Lesotho.
I'm in the honeymoon phase of my pre-service training and enjoying every minute of it.
My host family treats me like a princess and everything is still new and nice and beautiful. I'm loving the food and the mountains and the generosity of the Basotho people. 
Next week, though, I get my site location so I'll know exactly where I'll be living for the next two years.
I'm a little anxious because I don't want to be where it's too cold and I do want electricity, running water and a tree that grows Maloti (money.)
But I do understand that Peace Corps will place me where they need me. After all, that's what I came here for, right? We'll see where I end up.
Also, I'll be buying a cell phone soon so hopefully I can update the blog more.
Happy Turkey Day if I don't get to post before then.


P.S. The high altitude here has made my nails super dry but I'm I'm painting them when I can.
