I hope this works! Today was our last day of GTOT (general training of trainers) and we went "caroling" around the office singing PST songs. This is a short clip of one called "Tate Gwetu." (See link above) Let me know if the file link works/doesn't work! You should be able to play it in Windows Media Player.
GTOT has been a really good experience. I enjoy working with the trainers and other volunteers to get everything just right, and we were able to help with significant changes from our own PST to make the new group's training even better. I also found that I appreciate the Namibian trainers' opinions and advice much more now than I did at PST! Just like you realize your parents might have been right about some things as you grow up, I relate a lot more to the trainers now that I've been in country for a while.
I also really appreciated having an extended time to be away from site and look at Peace Corps service through a new perspective. We reviewed and critiqued some of the PST sessions on Peace Corps goals and integrating into your community which reminded me why I'm here. i.e. Not to be running around like crazy trying to do 6 different projects, some of which are not actually my responsibility. I now feel like I'll be able to refocus on building relationships and building the capacity of other teacher sat my school rather than trying to do a lot of things on my own. We'll see how long that lasts.
As much as I enjoyed everything, I'm ready to go back to Tsumeb! I'll be hiking home tomorrow, so you can pray for safe transport. However, I probably won't be able to post anything right away to say that I got home safe, so you'll just have to have faith that your prayers were answered. =) Thanks!
