As this is my first entry, I am a bit unsure of what to write and to whom I am writing. But I will do my best.
Although my Peace Corps service has not yet begun, I am already aware of the weight of this adventure. In fact, it is all I can think about. I think perhaps now I am well into what could be called the anticipation phase of this whole process. The one in which the hesitations and concerns I could not forget a few months ago have virtually vanished in the shadow of my excitement. I am truly overwhelmed by the prospect of what lies ahead. Is this really happening? Am I really doing this? YES!!!!!!!!!!! (Exclamation points really just don't do this justice. For a better understanding jump up and down three times, spin in about 50 circles and scream outloud like only a 6 year old can do and MAYBE then you can grasp my excitement)
Ok, for now, I think I have said enough. I don't think I can put on this page all that I am feeling anyhow! So within the next month I will post more, hopefully with pictures and stories of my new home in South America!
