Tonight I watched one of my all time favorite movies, "Me and You and Everyone We Know." The drawings on the bottom left are characters from the movie. In fact, the younger girl on the bottom right reminds me a bit of another character in the movie. If you haven't seen it, you should definately go out and rent it today. It was written and directed by Miranda July who also wrote a great book/series of short stories called "No One Belongs Here More than You."
Anyways, I said I had big news. Today, I accepted my assignment/invitation to volunteer with the Peace Corps in Mozambique. I will be teaching English as a Second Language and have have orientation in Philadelphia, PA from September 23-25. I will begin training immediately after that in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. I will try to periodically update this blog but I am not sure what access I will have to the Internet, or electricity. Here is a map of eastern Africa.
