What Had Happened Was… | January

This year, I’m starting a new series titled, ‘What Had Happened Was.’ This will be a month in review post to show things that I might not have blogged about and to sum up what I did that month.

What had happened in January was…

~I was in Rabat for Medical off and on for about 3 weeks. I’m proud that this was the first time I had to go to Rabat for Medical and I’ve been in country a year already. This is the volunteer lounge where I spent much time using the WiFi between appointments.

~I did get a helmet while in Rabat. Unfortunately, I left it on the bus when I got to site…oops.DSCN1937

~My last day in Rabat, I went to Sushi Box and had this lovely Bento Box for lunch before heading back to site.DSCN1934

~ I took this picture from the bus on the way home. I just want people to know that IT DOES SNOW IN MOROCCO!20150123_095951~The day after I get home, I find a concert in my Dar Chabab! There was singing and skits were performed.20150125_155512

~Once I was finally able to stay in site, one of my host-family members was able to install my hot water heater; Yay for hot running water!!!

~While back in site, I was also able to, finally, find a bike and a heater. I bought them from a nearby city. Peace Corps reimburses us for these purchases, however, you have to have previous Country Director approval before purchasing a bike and a volunteer must buy a heater their first winter in order to be reimbursed.DSCN1947

~I did make a post about Care Packages. This is a package from my parents. It actually arrived the day after Christmas but I was at a PCV ¬†party in Figuig, then I got sick and left for Rabat. So I didn’t ‘receive’ it until January.

~ Finally, I treated myself to a DIY at home spa day and decided to straighten my hair. I did straighten it for Thanksgiving but it rained in Rabat so it got super puffy.
