30 Hours 'til take-off!
In 30 hours from now I will be boarding a flight from NYC to Paris. I’ll switch planes and be in Niamey, Niger by3pm Friday. Holy Moly! Tomorrow morning, bright and early I get my yellow fever shot. Had a full day of Peace Corps staging today, which entailed 7 hours of discussion of what Peace Corps is all about and a lot of meeting of fellow volunteers. There are 44 of us volunteers, and as far as I can tell, we are all awesome. I went to dinner with a group tonight and we all laughed a lot and there was much merrymaking! So much is going to happen before I will be able to write again, I’ll be in a brand new town, speaking a brand new language with some brand new friends. Adventure awaits!
