I understand the great patience that is must take for people to try to figure me out. I mean, Japan, Geneva, Washington DC, a brief trip to Kenya/Ghana, no job, then contract job, then no job again, and don't forget the Handsome Man Friend.
As one of my professor's likes to say "If you're not confused, then you're not paying attention."
So, I've decided to post a bit here (check the link!) to help those who have so lovingly put up with me and are trying to understand this latest drama. Thank you!
Malawi is a small country in southern Africa. It's extremely poor; 65% of the population lives on less than $2 a day. I am moving there for three months to work with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and do research on smallholder agriculture. Most of the country (85%) lives in rural areas and are subsistence farmers, raising either corn or tobacco.
It is not a vacation destination, but it suits my crazy life just fine. :)
