Two weeks ago several education volunteers and I went on a site visit to stay with a current PC volunteer. We stayed with Carrie, so if you want to know what our life with her was like, read her blog!! She doesn't write about us, but we got to wallow in her wonderful rural Zambia homestead.
Her boyfriend, Doug, also writes eloquently and entertainingly about the Zambia experience.
Reading Doug's blog reminds me that one thing we would really appreciate is homesteading type books and magazines, since we will basically be living a lifestyle of American pioneer days-- we hope to have chickens and maybe goats, will haul water from a well or bore hole, light with kerosene, etc. Since we have limited knowledge and skills in those areas, any help might put us ahead on the learning curve.
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Little House on the Prairie. Who knew that Zambia would give me my Laura Ingalls Wilder opportunity??
