The masks in my countryside are “good masks”, in that they don’t hit people, although I still haven’t seen any yet.

My friend PCV Justin is Talking at Snotpickers. As the title clearly indicates, this is an introduction to the education system in Burkina Faso. School 101. Please take notes; this material will be on the test. The I’m a Lazy Volunteer series are links to blog posts written by others. I don’t write them because I’m a lazy Volunteer.
