We traveled for so many hours and I am finally in Togo! We flew to Paris and I got to go see the city on our layover. Only a few of us ventured out because many were afraid of missing our plane to Togo, but we got 2 good hours in Paris - saw Notre Dame, the museum of modern art, and the Louvre. Could even see the Eiffel Tower in the distance!
Life in Togo is pretty much how I expected it to be. We have been getting shots like crazy - not the alcoholic kind. Yellow fever, tetanus, meningitis, and malaria pills every day! Two more shots tomorrow, and two more the next day. We have training each day and everyone is very nice.
Need to run to dinner at our hostel. We are meeting up with current volunteers for drinks after dinner. Write more as soon as I can!
