Though the food was incredible, my favorite part of the evening was discovering that THE GATOR NATION truely is EVERYWHERE!! In the middle of my conversation with the Mrs. Stephenson's husband, I realized that both he and his wife were GATORS, as well as a former Peace corps volunteer from Liberia and her husband! Here I was in the middle of a room full of people from all over the US of all ages and what did we share...our GATOR PRIDE!
(we even took pictures doing the Gator CHOMP!)
From the napkins stamped with the US seal, to the different style toothpicks, all the details were perfect. It hasn't been an easy couple weeks having to adapt to bug attacks, crutches, traveling in sufocating diablos rojos but here I am now, OFFICALLY a Peace Corps Panama Volunteer. I am offically one of the 182 peace corps volunteers currently serving in Panama and one of the thousands around the world!
