Angela gets to use a computer about once a month when she travels to Lilongwe to meet with other Peace Corps volunteers from the area to get her mail and shop for necessities. In addition to her entries, she has loaded several pictures of the area and some of the activities in which she has been involved. Angela has also provided many different methods of contacting her.

Karen Garafalo, Interim Philmont Library Director recently sent Angela and her students a box of books. The books ranged from picture books to classics.
