So impressive (and OT)

Sarah O'Keefe / HumorLeave a Comment

Some days you get email that puts things in perspective. I have a cousin (actually, I have a LOT of cousins, but this is about one of them) who is in the Peace Corps. She is going to be teaching in Tanzania for the next two years.

She recently sent out an announcement about her assignment, which included this information:

The school is in the town of ______ in the region of _______. It’s in the very center of Tanzania. I shall have electricity and water close by. […] The internet will not be too far away. There are rumors that it might even be at my school.

Something to think about when I complain about dead spots in my wireless coverage. She will have electricity and water “close by.”
