Home away from Home


I want to take a (very) quick moment to tell you about where I’m staying.  I’m staying at a hostel/conference center (http://cct-centre.org/).  I have electricity, and I usually have running water…I certainly is not at the standards you would expect in the US, but the rain and mosquitoes stay out and it has good circulation.  There’s no AC, but I honestly haven’t missed it.  It’s “winter” right now, and so it’s not so hot.  The highs are in the low to mid 80s, and the lows are in the 60s.  Plus, there’s a good breeze.

I really only have two complaints about where I’m staying.  1) Because they are built to stay cool and let the breeze in, you can hear everything that’s going on outside.  I’m learning how to sleep through the call to prayer from the nearby mosque. 2) I don’t have anything to do in the evenings–no internet or TV.  I don’t want to venture out too much after dark.  I have a few books on my ipod, but I’ve already read one and started in on another.  I’ll probably start downloading books from the library while I’m at work to read while I’m at home.  Hopefully, I’ll develop some sort of social life so I can occupy my time in the evenings.  On the weekends, I can at least walk around town.  Otherwise, the book of crossword puzzles my mom gave to me to do on the plane will be completed in no time.  I will probably eventually buy one of the USB wifi sticks.  I was trying to avoid getting one of these because I could easily spend my entire budget on internet time.  However, I think I’m going to need one so I can skype with friends and family in the evenings and on the weekends.  I can go 12 hours without checking facebook, but I can’t go three months without speaking to loved ones 😉
