So today I started digging in my square. It was awfully slow moving, but we got a nice 1m/1.5m x 4m strip dug out about...um...15cm deep? Not too shabby for my first day of my first dig with only 3 volunteers, who are all inexperienced. At least Sam told me I was doing a good job, and I really appreciated that, especially since he's one of the directors. I'm putting off paper work a bit because there weren't any Field B supervisors in the dig house who explain things to me in a simple way. Elliot can be very confusing sometimes and Mendy doesn't always seem too willing to help...and also Elliot is always telling her to change how she does things because he doesn't like it. I'm going to wait for Lin to show me.
Oh, but I'm not in the dig house now because the internet was super slow. Which reminds me, if anyone needs to send any important emails to me that needs to be seen, like, immediately, send it to my Lycoming email (email@example.com) because the internet in the dig house doesn't like yahoo...stupid dig house internets. Well...our make-shift dig house is also the bomb shelter for the guest house. haha. At least we have a full pantry! Don't worry, we're not stealing from the guest house, we bought our own stuff. haha. But I got to watch the sunset. It was very pretty. I forgot how pretty the sunsets are here. Next time I'll make sure I have my camera with me.
So anyway, I really feel disconnected from home because this is all going mostly one way: away from me. What's going on with everyone at home? I'm starting to feel a bit homesick because I haven't been able to talk with anyone in over a week. But at least I have a bunch of friends from Lyco around to keep me distracted. I hope I don't get too homesick when I get back to Berlin. At least there I should be staying with people I already know! Which reminds me, I need to email her. Ok, I should get back to paperwork soon...
Picture posts shall be created on weekends when I have lots and lots, LOTS AND LOTS of time...haha.
