    ...in Bambara, the primary local language.  :)  But you can tell him I was the Bamako (capital city) volunteer who started work during his last months there.  (I was the only person in my training group assigned to the capital...everyone else was shipped out to the countryside).  I worked with two offices in the Malian gov't - tourism bureau and handcraft (artisanat) development.  Basically tried to help strengthen the support network for small business owners in that sector...lots of informal trainings, info tech, etc.  

    VA has been a pretty decent place to land for the moment.  Never had lived here in the past but the fiance got a scholarship to finish his degree and I tagged along and found a job.  It works for now anyways.  Best of luck to you and your fellow PCVs in mexico.
