Burkina Faso, TAKE TWO

Hi everyone,

For those of you who will continue to be my loyal readers, you'll be happy to know that I plan to blog while I am in Burkina Faso again from January 2010 - July 2010 for a disaster relief project. Burkina Faso experienced 25% of its annual rainfall in one day, this past September 1, 2009. The damage caused by this flood caused the displacement of an estimated 150,000 people.
Here's a video summing up what happened that day:

Through Peace Corps Response, I will be working with an NGO and the Governement of Burkina Faso to help rebuild homes and infrastructure that were destroyed. I will be based in Ouagadougou, which means I will (thankfully) have running water and electricity, and regular email access. I will be traveling to satellite villages where the majority of the destruction took place, but this is all in and around Ouaga.

My head's not in the game yet because I just returned from Israel, where I experienced an amazing and life-altering 10 days. Israel is nothing short of a beautiful country, with breathtaking landscapes and people full of life and very strong moral fibers. However, since I need to get ready for this trip, I'm struggling to pull my head out of the clouds and begin my preparations!!

I will post my Burkina number when I get a cell phone, but in the meantime, I am available on FB or email...

much love,
