Sorry it has been a while since we have posted but its starting to get alittle crazy around here preping for the new batch of volunteers. We made it to UB for our med check up (Paul has very gentle hands by the way) and for our dental checkup and cleaning AKA mouth torture by a mongolian. Just picture any horror movie with a dentist in it. We are all moved in to our apartment in Darkhan for training and tomorrow are going to the host families places to check them out for the arriving volunteers, I am going to have to eat a lot of tsuivan to check all of those jorlons. The apartment is great and its nice to have a TOILET! Its not nice to have cockroaches but I have declared war on them and have begun that war in earnest. My mother said that it is a war that I will never win, funny coming from the person who told me that I could do anything if I put my mind to it. So I;m going Taliban on their asses, there is going to be daily executions at the soccer stadium. No western music for the cockroaches, if they show themselves without proper atire they are stoned. Its going to be sick. There are going to be cockroach refugee camps in other apartments. I digress. The apartment is nice and big and we are in a good location right by our favorite restaurant. Ill try to post some pics soon. Love From Mongolia
