Crazy living

So the power just went off, don't worry i didn't forget to pay the power bill and i didn't trip the breaker. Here in India it's kind of a common thing and happens about 2-3 times a day depending on how often the guys controlling the switch wants to shut it off. I've been here for 2 weeks and one day so I'm KINDA getting use to it.
I'm still in the training process at the ministry house for the different positions. It's getting better each day i show up and become willing to learn. Trying to understand the India culture has become a learning experience itself as well.
I'm loving hanging out with the kids and just building there trust. It's becomes rather difficult at times both with the languages and the fact that they don't always come back the next day. Sometime they stay gone a day, a week or just never come back, but that's what i signed up for. Another benefit hanging with the boys is it helps with my Hindi. With the technique of "learning like children" it's fun to try to pronounce the words they say and them try to pronounce the words i say.
The staff and i are growing on each other. As the only single (non-married) person here there are 3 married couple and one of them has a 16 yr old son. Altogether there's about 17 in the "Life Connection" family. I hope all is doing well and enjoying the Southern Sunshine, and missing me. Missing my US family.
Peace & Love

NAMASTE नमस्ते

Welcome to India, well kinda. So my test today; LEADER " you ready to use Internet" ME sure. Draws map and puts me on bus. OK see you soon. I think i may be lost. OK for all you worry warts I'm not lost at the moment i know right where i am.
Well my thinking of how this was going to work i completely different now that i'm here. Updating is going to be completely different now but it'll work ok. This is just a trail run of what's going to look like as far as communications. there's many ideas brewing. As a going away present from the peters (my Foley family) the bought me a flip camcorder with 2 hrs recording time, heck yea man. already got some pretty neat stuff heck even deleted some before i was able to download it, trail run.

No ac, No cool breeze, One fan and killer mosquitoes. Who's up for a visit, ha ha ha. Did i mention i like the heat. I think i'm being tested. Someone once told me you can sweat in while in the water, just found out it's true. Never thought i could sweat while taking a shower, that's hot.
That's all i got for now. Love Y'all
