Hi there, friends.
In case you`ve forgotten, my name is Jeff and I`m in Madagascar.
So, I`ve completed over 5 months at site. I had a great Christmas and New Year with my friends in Diego and now I`m in Tana for In-service Training for a week.
Teaching is going well and I`ve begun to feel very "tamana" (at home) in Andapa. My language skills are enough to get me by, my french is improving (thanks to the 2 french people in my town) and everyone in my town knows me and treats me almost like any other townperson. Life is becoming more and more routine, which is a great thing. On the whole, all is good.
I`ll probably be able to check email one more time in the next 3 weeks or so (probably next Friday) so if you`ve got anything to say, say it now.
I hope everyone is doing good and I`m really anxious to hear what you`re all up to.
Alicia, if I didn`t get the address to everybody right, please send this on to all my friends.
Thanks, take care, and keep in touch.
