New Living Situation

As I briefly mentioned in my last post, I have changed houses within my town of Mibirizi. My last living situation was deemed unacceptable by Peace Corps because of too little space and too many people. Thus began the lengthy process of finding a new house in Mibirizi. Peace Corps visited a total of 5 times to assess my house or approve prospective houses. This is a big deal because when the Peace Corps Landcruiser rumbles into town it's like a UFO landing. Some locals believed, possibly still believe, that the Peace Corps car comes to give me money.
