It finally feels like we're really in the peace corps. We attended a meeting of a local women's group that was so long I finally finished knitting one of the purple socks I cast on last August. The women already raise corn and pigs. They are interested in literacy and English classes. Also they wanted to know if I would teach them to knit. Now we're speaking the same language.
