I've been in Rwanda for close to a month now (I can't believe it's been that long already) so it's about time I start to show you pictures of where I live and work. I won't include pictures of the school just yet because I'm finishing up a slideshow with pictures and videos from the party for the 57th anniversary of the school's founding and once it's done, I'll put it on YouTube and include the link on the blog. So for now, here is my house.
|The outside of the house from the north side. Sisters live through the door at the end of the sidewalk on the left.|
|The view from the kitchen doorway. You can see the bedroom doors; the left one leads to my room.|
|The view from the front door, which is unseen on my left|
|My room with my princess/tent bed. Some nights I feel like I'm camping, complete with my headlamp to read with the light out. To the left is my cabinet for clothes and valuable possessions. To the right are two selves on the floor for books.|
|This is the sink room, as you can see. The door leads to Rita's room.|
|Lastly, the browner, elevated soil is my future garden. I still have to create the rows. Seeds should go in this week now that it rains almost every day, usually at night. The wall to the left is the chapel.|
