Hello, how are you?  Or in Tumbuka, Muli uli? 

My name is Colleen Steele and I will be spending my summer in Malawi with Engineers Without Borders.  I wish that I could give you the specifics of my upcoming placement, but I am still waiting for those specifics to be confirmed.  I am going to try and keep this first post short, sweet, and salty and hopefully get you salivating for more...

Through this blog, I hope to share with you my conundrums, laughter, torments, demystifications, euphoria, perspectives, and (hopefully in smaller quantities) despairs over my next four months of volunteering in Malawi with EWB.

Tears, sweat, and blood,

colleen.

PS- I know the band's name is 'Blood, Sweat, & Tears.'  Tears, sweat, and blood is the order these fluids most commonly leave my body...
