The last couple days have been pretty hectic, running around the Peace Corps office filling out papers, getting malaria medication, making copies of teaching manuals, learning how to fill out VRF (Volunteer Report Forms), and just ironing out details before officially getting started.
On Friday at around 2pm I'll be arriving at my site....to STAY! Between now and then we were given a little break to gather ourselves mentally, physically, and emotionally. A peaceful beach on the pacific coast awaits my arrival later today. Who can say that the first couple days of their new job, they get vacation days... No wonder Peace Corps ranked 5th on the List of Top Employers in 2008 ( http://www.black-collegian.com/issues/2ndsem08/top100_ranking.htm )
Keep in mind that Goal #3 of the peace corps is to teach other Americans about Panamanian culture......sooooo....I can't for everyone to come visit.
