Official!

Good morning, kiddos! Just wanted to let you know that I'm now an official member of Peace Corps, having been sworn in last night by the ambassador and Nigerien officials in two different languages (English and French). I'll be leaving for my new village tomorrow. It's in the Maradi region and I've posted my new mailing address on the side. I'm really looking forward to hearing from you and telling you all about my new village. I already know that they have a lot of kokari (effort) and it's going to be a great two years. Have written you one letter already, but I know that mail to and from Niger takes a long time - sai hankuri (have patience). Hope you all are well.
:)
