I Had to Come All the Way to Lesotho


Believe it or not, people, but I just shaved my legs!  That’s right.  My legs are silky smooth for the first time in 2 years-ish.  It’s not that I don’t like having soft, hairless legs, I love that feeling…I just hate the process of shaving and feeling unnecessarily obligated to do so by some social construct.  I shave on my own prerogative and no one else’s and I just so happened to feel compelled.  Perhaps part of it was the fact that I am at a hotel right with all the other PCVs in my group for a workshop on Project Management & Design and HIV/AIDS Capacity Building.  The idea of shaving one’s legs is much more appealing when hot, running water in a bathtub is involved, opposed to my bucket at home.  The only downside is that my first layer of defense for warmth is now swishing down the drains in Lesotho, and I need all the help to stay warm these days.
