There are two other volunteers I trained with who will be coming with me up to Northwest Province as well as five other PCVs from the RAP group. The next step is to move into my new hut in Mumena Village. I will spend the next three months fixing up my hut; I will paint my sitting room walls bright yellow, get a garden started, and start searching for a dog. I talk more about the reason I decided to get a dog in a later post.
The signifigance to the first three months as new Volunteers we are required to stay in our district and get to know the villagers and fix up our huts. Once the three months begin work. I am the only Peace Corps Volunteer in my area. The closest Volunteer to me is 30k away.
