in zambia now

Tonight is my second night in Zambia and I am LOVING it! Its great to be back on the continent!
I've been having a grand time with the trainees but I'm excited to get this show on the road.
After talking with embassy people and getting 3 more shots in a string of 15 total, we went shopping to prepare for our first site visit in Zambia where we visit a current volunteer. (the best part is that he is raising chickens as part of his nutrition project, how perfect!)
I also chose my language today... Tumbuka... 3 volunteers total are learning it, so it will be our "secret language", especially becuase I am fairly certain I will NEVER meet anyone in the states that speaks a language spoken in a tiny part of Zambia eh?!
Overall I'm just overjoyed to be here and you all should write me a lot because this is my last internet for 9 weeks... so snail mail is the way to be... and its a whole lot easier to return letters than to write everyone at once!
I miss you all!

Welcome back to Africa Katey! I hear the excitement in your written words. I am thrilled for you! Of course, it doesn't make us miss you less, we just know you are having the time of your life. Luapula Province, chickens, obscure language...God is good.
Hang in there baby girl. We love you and have snail mail on it's way!
