Hey everybody!!!
well i hope this works and that yall like it let me know. Ok so as of tody I have been gone for exactly two months and I cant decide if it has been the longest two months of my life or if they have gone super fast!!! And in exactly one month I will be a "real" Peace Corps Volunteer, and moving into my own apartment for the first time in my life!!! Everything here is going ok I'm starting to get frustrated with the entire language aspect of it I feel like I don't know anything and I'm sure I don't sound Macedonia but I'm still here. It's hard you have your good days and bad days here just like you would at home but keeping everything in perspective while you are here is a little different.
Thursday was a big deal here in Macedonia I'm not sure if you all know but Bush recognized Macedonia as it's own country and Republic no longer Former Republic of Yugoslovia or (F.Y.R.O.M) This is a very big deal they threw a party outside of the embassy, and Laura Bush was even here this week. Let me just tell you guys this was HUGE. Sorry this is a short letter just wanted to make sure it works for everyone love and miss you all

Ray Blakney on

Good Day Darcie!

Sorry to bother you. My name is Ray Blakney and I am a RPCV from Mexico. I am working on a 3rd goal project with the PC regional offices and the main office in DC to try to create an online archive to keep the language training material made all over the world from getting lost. I have created a sub-section on the website my wife and I run - - with all the information I have been able to get to date (from over the web and sent to me directly by PC staff and PCV's). I currently have close to 100 languages with ebooks, audios and even some videos.

The next step for this project is that I am trying to get the world out about this resource so that it can not only be used by PCV's or those accepted into the Peace Corps, but also so that when people run across material that is not on the site they can send it to me and I can get it up for everybody to use. I was hoping that you could help getting the word out by putting a link on this on your site at:

so that people know it is there. There should be something there for almost everybody. It is all 100% free to use and share. Here is the specific page of the Peace Corps Archive:

Thanks for any help you can provide in making this 3rd goal project a success. And if anybody in your group has some old material they can scan or already have in digital form, and want to add to the archive, please don't hesitate to pass them my email. Thanks and have a great day.
