Hello everyone!

So I’m writing to update you all on my goings on here in Senegal now that I’ve been here for a month. Tomorrow I will travel to where I will be living for the next two years, a small village called Belel Kelley about 20km south of the city of Podor. While there I will not have access to electricity or running water, so updates will be few and far between. As such I am going to try and keep a blog of my work here in Senegal and hope that you will follow along and comment.

Please (and I do mean please) write me an email, letter, or smoke signal keeping me up to date on the happenings in your life mundane or otherwise. I will be busy and may not have the means with which to respond but I will dearly appreciate it. Ways in which you can contact me are listed below and on my blog.

I’m excited to begin work here in Senegal and hope that you will all keep in touch; please feel free to forward this email to anyone and everyone who might be interested.

Yours truly,
Mariel C. Garcia
