Amrane, ev kyanke hesht e
Summer is here, and so are the flies. Lots of flies. Bees have started nesting in the woodpile we use to heat water for showers. They spend a lot of time sucking on the tar that the boards are coated with, though i'm not sure what they get out of it. Our time in the village is drawing to a close, which is sad and exciting. It will be nice to get a fresh start in a bigger city, where strangers won't necessarily know what i ate for breakfast. Also, i'm anxious to begin work, in both senses of the word. For those of you who are counting, the final language exam is on the 12th and we swear in as peace corps volunteers on the 14th. Wish me luck.
