My name is Sacha; I happen to be volunteering with VSO Canada as well, under their NetCorps program, and have been assigned a posting in - you guessed it - Sierra Leone! In my case I'll be staying for 3 months in Freetown, doing some IT-related work with the Ministry of Development and Economic Planning.
I'll be travelling to Sierra Leone in two weeks (January 22 is my arrival date). I was pleasantly surprised to find your blog during some Internet research I was doing on my placement, and I found your entries and photos are very entertaining and insightful. I'll be starting a blog myself shortly and plan to be taking lots of pictures too!
In any case, my email address is at the bottom of this message; drop my a line when you have some time, I'd love to hear from you, particularly if there's any advice or stuff you wish you'd known beforehand that you could share with a newly minted volunteer like myself. And hey, if ever I have a chance to visit your part of the country, maybe I can bring you a Mars bar? ;-)
Cheers, looking forward to hearing from you!
