I have moved out of Sissamba (tear) and I am now staying in the city of Ouahigouya until the 26th of December. I met my counterpart this week and I got the low down on my future site.
Nakaba has around 6000 residents. I have my own market that happens every 3 days that my counterpart says is pretty decent. I also have 2 boutiques. There are three main religions that consist of Christianity, Islam, and Animist. There is a church in my village and a mosque in the next village over. I have just one primary school, and I am really close to a main road with easy access to the capital. The closest access to Internet is in my regional capital of Koupela! I do however have reception all over my town, so my cell will work (wink wink) My CSPS covers 6 others villages the farthest one away is 9km. I'm really excited to get to site and get settled in!!!
Oh I almost forgot my house has 3 rooms, and courtyard with hanger!
By the time I post this I will be an official volunteer and I will probably be another year older.
