Oh yeah also you should know what Candy Crush is.
Nothing like waking up to the sound's of your family's pet prehistoric-bird. Seriously; pterodactyl + chicken = this thing
Bathroom time in the US: >5 minutes
Bathroom time in Tajikistan: <5 minutes
WATER PRESSURE WOULD BE GREAT. #ItsLikeALightDrizzle
Rapid succession police sirens down Rudaki Ave. No worries, just the taxi driving gang with their after-market [legal] sirens #GoodMorning
Twenty minutes for breakfast AKA twenty minutes spent waiting for my tea to cool down #Sweatin
All I can think while brushing my teeth is "don't swallow the water, don't swallow the water" #SickForDays
Why does this one stretch of my daily walk ALWAYS smell like feces? #HoldinMyNose
The crosswalk which gives me a green light to cross for 10 seconds and no one stops #DeadmanWalkin
The daily struggle to ask for water WITHOUT gas continues
The hottest classroom (with air conditioning) award goes to... #Drumroll
MY CLASSROOM. I get to sit in this stagnant room for the next four hours and SWEAT
Already soaked. #SexyAndIKnowIt
Break! Candy Crush time.
I have a ten minute break and my teacher keeps talking to me <<<<<<<
Now that the "break" has concluded... on to some story I absolutely do not understand.
Legitimately think that story is in a language other than Persian #TryAgainProfessor
Breakkkkkkkk. Going to the "Wild Dragon Shack" for a bag of chips and a snickers... All for a dollar.
Sorry prof, don't mind while I just sit here and chomp on my chips super loudly #NomNom
Tajik is seriously like another language. It is NOT Iranian Farsi lol #CyrillicBeLikeHuh
So hungry. Need food. One more hour.
FINALLY BEAT THIS LEVEL ON CANDY CRUSH #CandyCrushinForDays
When you're sitting in class talking about how to say all kinds of fruits in Tajik AND YOU'RE STARVING #ThatStuffIDontLike
And so commences the daily debate: sketchy (and cheap) Russian cafe or the Iranian restaurant.
Justice prevails! Onward to the tasty Iranian food (Paniz).
Waiting for the bus means telling 27 mashrutkas that you're waiting for the bus #TheHustle
We're on the bus with the air freshener! If only there was more than one and it wasn't 110 out... #StinkSession
Paniz! Paniz! Paniz!
Tajik waitresses that don't speak Iranian Farsi at the Iranian restaurant #RiddleMeThat
Stuffed. God I love Iranian food.
We always say we want to "do something" but then we walk outside and we're like... Lets go to the place with air conditioning #TajikProblems
REVISION: we have decided to go to the bazaar.
We put our hand out on the side of the road and every single car pulled over and tried to pick us up. #MashrutkaTime
How many people do you think the driver is going to pick up?
Answer: 19. 19 people. In a van. No air conditioning. Where do I even go?
Bazaar :( let's go. I'm as wet as the ocean and I'm in the middle of a desert.
Mashrutka number two of the day. Lets play #GuessHowManyPeopleCanWeFit!
This bridge looks like it's under construction... Traffic narrowed down to one lane each way.
UPDATE: Traffic limited to one lane ONE way... And guess what?? It's not the way we're going
Whelp. Crossed the bridge. That was my #LifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes moment of the day...
No I don't speak Russian, but thanks for assuming I do #EveryoneInThisCountry
Ahhhh the daily lecture from random Tajiks about the greatness of the Russian language, how useful, important it is, etc.
No, I still don't speak Russian.
Safely out of the car! I would kiss the ground right now if it wasn't full of trash #TajikProblems
Bahahah @JoeCalder fell in the joo!
Two words: air conditioning.
The need to go to the squatty potty can sneak up on one very fast #TajikProblems
Good thing someone left their homework here; I forgot my toilet paper.
Home! Predinner nap!
Anyone awake? I need some help on #CandyCrush
Doing Persian homework after doing Persian class and Persian speaking all day is frustrating. #BrokenBrain
Tajik TV, tho.
Bibijon just asked me why I wasn't married (again). Oh Bibijon... #IfOnlyYouKnew
That time of day when the city is breaking fast. In other words, DEAD SILENT all across the city. #NomNom
The silence only broken by my host brother and father arguing. Daily occurrence, nothing to worry about here folks.
Dinner wrapping up...
...false alarm more food has just arrived!
Host family is really concerned that I don't eat enough. They are easily the only people that think that. #FatKid
My daily argument with my host mom. She refuses to let me even take my dishes into the kitchen. It's no big deal- I have hands!
Teaching my host brother and the neighbor how to play Rummy!
This isn't going well.
Okay... Rummy unsuccessful. Guess we'll play that Russian card game that they love so much.
It's called like Kaldrogo or something. Never really sure what's happening in it. #IDontSpeakRussian
I won?! I think the kids I'm playing with are just as surprised as me!
Fruit plate! Wahoooooooo
Goodnight Twitter, I'm going to bed!
Haha this is amazing [RandomLinkHere]
Seriously I need to go to sleep.
Looks like it's supposed to cool down tomorrow- only 105!
I love that there's a hot water heater right next to the toilet! #SaidNoOneEver
Immodium: my best friend in Tajikistan #TajikLife
Either I'm hallucinating or there's a small earthquake occurring.
Why am I still awake?
