Day 1 as a volunteer…

Day 1 as a PCV: Today, we shopped at Serekunda Market for things to bring to our site (chairs, laundry wash basins, propane gas tank, etc). Then it rained… and thundered… and rained… and we waited… and watched… and the street became a river of water 6 inches high… more like a flash flood… and so I took off my shoes and socks… and walked through the dirty muck to get back into our vans.

Some of the things purchased:

  • Bed Foam Mattress = D500
