Hey everyone. There is not too much to report on this week. I still have lots of training and my French is slowly improving. I'm learning a lot about public health and health problems in Cameroon. With my family I have been carrying water from the nearest well....which is exhausting! I also went to a Catholic Church service in Mengong. It was really cool seeing the same service I would see in a Catholic Church in California in West Africa but with some Bulu (and some French spoken) as well as traditional (Christian) songs and outfits in the choir. Also I have learned to scale and gut a fish and will hopefully learn to prepare a chicken as well with my home family!
Next week I will be going to a volunteer post with three other trainees to see the life and work of a volunteer in Fundong, Cameroon. Fundong is in the Northwestern province and is well know for it's many tribes with their deep cultural roots. It is also a Pigin English speaking region. It is also mountainous which I love! The week after that I will find out where my own post will be! Lately we have been interacting more and more with current volunteers who are a wealth of wisdom and stories. However I think the volunteer post visits will be particularly interesting because I will get a real taste of how I will be living and what I will be doing.
That's all for now! News on my sight visit next time!
