More Videos - Kids in My 1st Village

Here are some more videos. When I didn't have any work happening (which was often), I spent most of my free time at my first site with the kids in my neighborhood. Sometimes I'd use the opportunity to talk about things like handwashing and hygiene, but of course we had lots of fun silly time. The first couple of videos are of them doing Malagasy things: dancing and a children's rhyme. Then there are a few of me working on the Peace Corps' 2nd goal to foster understanding of American culture among host country nationals: tee ball & line dancing. The final one is a testament to the universality of some aspects of culture; "Bieber Fever" has is just as prevalent in Madagascar as it is in the states.

Aren't these kids fantastic?

Love love.


  1. This is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing these!

  2. Oh my gosh! The kids are sooo adorable! Your new house looks so much better than your other site, so hopefully you are a little more comfortable. I'm glad you like the dress! (I just remember walking by the stand, spotting the dress, and saying to Cassey: "This is SO Kristen!" and I had to send it it :)

    So I don't know if I mentioned this in a text, and your parents probably told you, but I'm moving to Texas! I am excited and when you get back you should come visit haha! But seriously, let me know when you get back so I can buy a ticket home.

    Love you and miss you,
