These last couple of days have been really good. Model school is over and we had a great Thanksgiving. Peace Corps provided us with turkeys, which we slaughtered, gutted, and pit-roasted. I stayed overnight at the training hub last night with some of the other guys and we woke up early to get the coals going for our pit. I am tired and my back muscles are sore, but it was well worth the work that we put into it.

Our Thanksgiving meal turned out great. Everyone helped in some way and all of the dishes were delicious. Besides turkey, we had green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, salad, pumpkin bread, and macaroni and cheese. We also had chocolate chip cookies from a bakery in Kigali.

The turkey pit was very hot.
