Excitement Grows

A few days ago we received our Peace Corps Staging Kit, made our airline reservations for departure on June 4th, and started to receive emails from others Peace Corps members who are joining us in Los Angles, bound for Samoa. The level of excitement is high as all anticipate meeting one another and the adventures which lie ahead.

It is hard to tell the backgrounds of our Samoan group, but from what little I can tell, they are an eclectic group of about 10-12 who are ready to sample their piece of the Peace Corps pie. They seem as anxious as we to find out who are their fellow volunteers.

Whatever may be, now is a wild emotional ride as the days dwindle down to a precious few (seems like I have heard that before).
