The first week of school in Bartica

School started yesterday, and due to some issues concerning Peace Corps I wasn't able to visit any classrooms.

Today was the second day of school.  I came to the Education Department office to wrap up some things before starting my visits.  It was then that I realized I had lost all the music on my iPod and I got really angry and annoyed.  This lasted for about twenty minutes.

Then, I found out that a girl was run over by a car and killed this morning while on the way to school.  There are people in Bartica who drive down our streets doing 60mph.  It was bound to happen at some point and today was the day.

I feel badly for that girl and her family.
