New mailing address for BMB

Brett's internet is down, so I'm doing this little update for him.

Brett would like you to send your letters and packages here, to his new address.

Brett Burk, PCV
PO Box 361
Qacha's Nek, 600 Lesotho
Southern Africa

From what I understand, if you have sent him anything to his address in Maseru, he will still get it. However, it will just take awhile for him to make it back to the capital to get it.

So update your address book, people!

xo danie.

EDIT: PS.. Brett's lovely mama got him a subscription to the new yorker, so no need to send those anymore, but other magazines are lovely.

Few more days as a PCT

I just found out that Lesotho is technically a Fourth World Country. Check it on wikipedia.

I swear in as a PCV on Thursday morning.
I tested as intermediate-medium on my Sesotho language test (one more thing I can put on my resume! I speak two of South Africa's 11 official languages).
Things have been going really well here, I'm super excited to get out to site and start taking care of business.
Been reading a ton, plan to keep reading a ton.

I don't know when I'll be able to update this again (might be as much as a month). Write me letters! I'll write back and it will entertain me!

Love y'all

ps: check out the blogs on the right side of the page, they're from other people in my class and some will update a bunch (and you can see pictures and descriptions of events and the culture!)
