Doing better, needed some time to settle in. Using an NGO computer (I helped the guy to photograph-instead-of-scan a document yesterday after he randomly called me from a stationary store, so I figure it’s reasonable to use his Internet). Going to visit another PCV for Christmas, which I’m really looking forward to, almost as much as I’m looking forward to the several hours I’ll spend in the Internet cafe on the way home. I’ve had no power at my house for several days, apparently because the school didn’t bother to pay its electricity bill for the past two months. Needless to say, I am not impressed! It’s not all bad, though: no power means the neighbors can’t blast music at all hours, which means I can sleep in!

So that’s that. Merry Christmas, everyone, or happy whatever other holiday you celebrate.
