CORRECTION

I INCORRECTLY typed Sue's blog address (put in an extra "p") in my last post. Her blog address is syshqiponje.wordpress.com
AND if you got an email from my dad trying to correct it, he incorrectly shared the blood is from my site mate, Sarah. As I stated originally, it's from Sue, who is serving in the capital city, Tirana. She is an older volunteer like me and a Marketing/research wizard.
Enjoy!! Xo
