FYI...these are courtesy of Google...I will get mine up when I can! But wanted to give you all an idea!
Here is exactly what the schools look like!
What our mud huts look like! We have five, surrounded by a cement wall. There are wooden doors that lock and screens and glass on the windows. The floors are also cement. But the house is the same. Cool, huh?!! Who's coming to visit?!! ;-)
A typical Togolese dog - ours will look something like this!
Letters take 2-5 weeks to arrive; packages a bit longer. I believe the postage for a letter 1st class, air mail will be $.98. As for packages, be careful...the cost will quickly sky rocket. Use this to estimate the price. Flatrate boxes are $42. I promise I'll appreciate a letter just as much as lots of chocolate ;-) Make sure you send all mail by airmail and it is under 5lbs. Don't insure it...They say it's not worth it!
