Mislearnings Etc

For most of last week a trainee up north thought she was constantly telling her homestay family how much she liked things, but she was actually just saying "peanut butter" a lot.

Similarly, it's been really hot this week, and a trainee in my language group kept saying "teranga," which means "hospitality," until we realized that she thought it meant "it's hot!"

Overall, we had a pretty good couple days back in the village, and I'm back at the Training Center in Thiès now. It's still pretty hot, so I'm going to go sit somewhere and read and sweat until I'm ready to take a shower.
