Just like every episode of MTV Cribs features a look inside the fridge, it seems like every Peace Corps blog has to mention a packing list, so here it is:
I'm not going to pretend to know what I'll need for the next 27 months, but I plan on writing another post or commenting on this one to give future volunteers an idea of what works and what doesn't.
I will however pass along some tips that I got from others with more experience than me.
- My high school French teacher grew up in Togo and said that cell phone service is good and that everyone has one. He said that drivers and people with electricity are fine with letting you get a quick charge whenever possible.
- I spoke with a RPCV who was working on the Africa country desk in DC and he recommended getting saddlebags for the bike that the Peace Corps will give me.
That's it for now. Next post will be from Africa!
