Gwen "Mapula" Cummings  PCV in SA πŸŒπŸŒ»βš“οΈπŸŒ™

Already celebrating Father's Day here in πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ and I'm missing this 🐻 a lil extra today. 🍻to the only guy who would drive through treacherous icy conditions so I could find the "perfect" suitcase. Counting the days until we are reunited over yoga classes and craft beer. Love you forever πŸ’™πŸ’š

Tefatso is my favorite and he knows it.

No one I'd rather be trapped in Pretoria with β€οΈπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦

Sending all my Mother's Day love from 10,000 miles away! Our video calls look a lil different than I hoped (am I the only PCV in SA with terrible service??) but, despite the communication challenges, your kind words and encouragement make every day here a lil brighter. I'm more grateful for you now than ever before - I wouldn't be following my dreams without you. Ke rata wena, Mama! πŸ’—πŸ’™

I have found my happy place. The child on my lap, not so much. #howiseepc

On Thursday, I was cooking the South African staple food (pap) with my head covered, awaiting meeting the tribal council in my village. This morning, I was sitting in a McDonald's trying to get wifi. South Africa is confusing.

10 weeks later and we are officially sworn in as Peace Corps Volunteers! Cheers to SA35 and the 2 years of adventures that lie ahead of us.

Celebrating yesterday with my squad. Grateful for my amazing host fam/neighbors and patient Sepedi language instructor, who have helped me navigate the past 10 weeks in SA ❀ Less than a week left of being a trainee!

Places to go, people to see #peacecorpssouthafrica

It's gonna rain. #peacecorpssouthafrica
