More News From Togo

This is Ann’s mom again.  I had a wonderful phone conversation with Ann.  She is doing fine and misses everybody.  She hopes to have computer access soon.  She herself will then post a newsy update on her blog.

Ann and Nathan have both been busy with French lessons.  Nathan has been planting melons, while Ann has been learning how to repair the brakes and change a tire on her mountain bike.  Ann said that she is trying to ignore all of the insects and “critters”, but she admitted that she had to ask the woman with whom she is living to come and help her deal with the foot long lizard roaming around her bedroom!  The dry season begins in November.  Meanwhile, it is hot and rainy.  Ann said that her feet are always muddy.  She will have to follow the example of the people of Togo, who take 3 baths a day, in order to stay cool and refreshed.  Nathan, meanwhile, is competing with the other male Peace Corps volunteers to see who can grow the longest beard.  It should be interesting to see pictures of Ann and Nathan in Togo! 

Stay tuned for more news from Togo.

Hi Ann's Mom (and Ann too, if you read this) -

My name is Liz Kuebler and I am friends with Matt Michels, who also left with the Sept stage for Togo. I stumbled across your blog while doing some of my own research on the PC (I'm an aspiring Vol myself). I haven't heard from him yet, and I'm not too close with his family, so I haven't contacted them... but I'm excited to hear about Ann and Nathan's experiences in Togo too!!

Best wishes,
Liz
