Kituo cha kazi

I’ll be where I expected (and hoped) to be placed, in Makete, halfway between Njombe and Mbeya on an apparently AWFUL road, in the mountains! Really high in the mountains! It will be cold! Once I have an address, send me blankets and sweaters! I’m super excited.

Eleven of our thirty-one person class got placed in the Iringa region and six in the neighboring Mbeya region, and there are already a ton of PCVs around, so I should be seeing a lot of people, which is great.

ETA: I’ll be teaching ICT at an O-level government school.

Google maps shows some snow cover in that area. Time to start knitting.
