Peace Corps Volunteers need to learn how to have no expectations. You never know what will happen, who you might meet, or what ideas you might have.
Having no expectations means that when you show up at the post office to mail some World Wise Schools letters to one of your high school teachers, and you find the post office closed because there’s a snake inside, you roll with it.
Swazis really fear snakes, but I couldn’t imagine this was anything special. It turns out I was wrong.
There was a pretty big viper inside being followed by a trained snake catcher.
What a morning.
