1st Week Here

Well, we've been in Livingstone for almost a week now. We've all settled in and have gotten into the routine of our projects. I've been volunteering primarily in home-based care. It's a wonderful opportunity to be able to go into the homes of local residents and learn about their daily way of life. Unfortunately, HIV/AIDS is pervasive throughout Livingstone (about 1 in 3 have it), so we've been visiting many AIDS patients and there's been some TB as well. We're able to have fun though as well. We saw Victoria Falls by moonlight. We crossed this narrow bridge in the pitch dark...the mist from the falls felt like pouring rain. It was an absolutely amazing experience, and I can't wait to see it in the daylight! That's all for now...I'll write more later. ~ Holly
