Today we found out that our country director, Ted, plays Bridge.  Not only does he play bridge but he is a Bridge Master.  We were playing Bridge at break tea and Ted was at Luweza to talk to us at our next session.  He noticed and so he came over and started giving us tips.  He said that when he served in Senegal, he had a group of volunteers that would have Bridge marathons.  We need to find more people that play or want to learn, because right now there are only 3 of us in the west and 2 in the east.

We also had one of those interesting driving experiences today.  We fit 18 people into a Land Cruiser.  That’s talent!  We had one of the Peace Corps drivers driving us to the Qaulity Supermarket so we could test our new bank card and I don’t think he realized how many wanted to go, so he only brought the Land Cruiser.  Life here is full of challenges and this is one of the more entertaining ones.
