|The incredible view from Lisa's village|
Back in training, when we were given the chance to give input on our site assignments, I suspect the only Mokhotlong site was lower on my list, although it has been long enough I cannot remember. Knowing me, I probably was intimidated by the idea of living so remotely and at elevation. I spent years living at sea level and in the foothills. I had never lived at the kinds of elevations that we see in Lesotho. Now, after being here as long as I have and having visited elevation, I know that I am strong enough to handle both the distance and the elevations. Even the arduous climb from Lisa’s home and school up the mountain to the road was more bearable than it appeared when standing at the bottom.
