I really haven’t been very clear about the process of the Peace Corps but it occurs to me that many may not actually know that I’m not yet a PC Volunteer….I’m just a ‘trainee’. This ‘homestay’ period is a time of training and preparation before we actually move to site for service. It has been a very intense time, full of new experiences and good friends. Swearing in ceremony will be Thanksgiving day when I actually become a volunteer and the following day will move to my service site in Kriva Palanka. My new apartment will be the top floor of a house with an outside entrance. It has a living room, bedroom, bathroom and tiny kitchen–I will post pictures when I get back on-line with my own computer and am not using a public internet cafe. My apologies that this is one of the more ‘boring’ posts’ but I promise to get back in the swing with detailed descriptions when I’m able to do so. Hugs to all.
