nothing says "delicious" like a headless mound of frozen fish.
here are the events as of late:
volunteers from my group, az 6, just had their mid service conference. this is the first time the sixth group az pcvs have all come together since swearing in as volunteers in december of 2008. truthfully, a lot of it was painfully boring, but overall it went well. events like these can't help but to be boring. it was nice to catch up with some people. we played far more bored games (soooo funny) than usual and shot the shit. on the night before our departure from msc we got snowed in by a blizzard and thereby got an extra night at the hotel. this meant, for the pcvs, free food and hot showers. i've said this before, but man o man i miss hot showers (as i type this i'm preparing my bucket bath).
also, my SPA grant for an English Language Resource Center for the Technical and Humanitarian Lyceum in Mingechevir is approved pending some minor changes and explanations. that's always a good thing. so, i have my work cut out for me in the near future. also, i might be able to raise some funds for two community gardens via sale of some paintings. but, we'll see. i'm not trying too hard to sell them. they just might get sold anyways at an embassy event.
also, big shout out to mary and my aunt monica. amazing packages! i've been living off them for the past few days....mmm (for real this time).
