Comment resp.

So, I just wanted to make a quick post while I have the chance. I’m on vacation in Opuwo at the moment, rocking out the Himba villages. I must say, so far its super cool. I am staying with another volunteer up here, and she had internet in her house; such a luxury!
I think this was a really good time for me to take a break. I have been in my village now for something like 8 months, and my mental status has really been suffering.
So, while I have the chance, I would like to address a couple of comments. First, Laura, I have been looking into some options for via letter communication for your classes. As for the capacity within Aranos, we only have one junior secondary school -- 8th through 10th grade -- and two senior primary schools -- 4th though 6th grade... Also, the logistics within the community for receiving/sending mail is not all that good. Finding teachers to support something like this is difficult. However, I do have something else for you, and I will do everything that I can on my side to make it work. It’s called World Wise Schools. It’s a program through the PC that matches up classes for letter writing. I have been meaning to send a letter to you but things have been really busy lately. I have moved twice in the past month and have been running a soup kitchen out of my newest home; on top of my other projects. Crazy times. But if you can look into it, you should be able to search for in on the PC web site, I can refer a class or teacher from a larger community or just from someone in a village that I know. I think that I am coming home for ThanksGiving, so we can work on it while I'm home? But we can for sure work something out.
To Nicholel Sheilds. I did get the stuff you sent! I can't tell you how much that I appreciated it. I know that I haven’t been the best about responding to the letter; partly due to my procrastinator tendencies and partly due to the fact that this is a difficult place in my life in some respects. But truly, I did very much appreciate it. There were a few poems that really got to me due to what was going on around me and really made me think about the condition of fear in students, both at home and here. Sending books is always a good thing. The literacy rate isn’t that high, but some students do read and digest a good amount of books. Most libraries don’t carry any of what we would consider "classics". Any children’s literature goes really well. Anything to inspire the youth.
Ok, there is more that I would like to write now, but time online is always an issue, so for now this will have to do. I will try again in a night or two.
