I leave on Sunday for ALBANIA!!!! I could not be more excited. People always ask if I am scared or nervous but for some strange reason I feel neither yet. On Sunday I go to Philadelphia where I will meet up with the other 38 health volunteers in my group. We will spend two days in Philadelphia and then it is on to Elbasan, Albania where I will be living for the next 3 months of training. When the 3 month training is complete, let’s hope I can speak enough Albanian where I can at least find the bathrooms, I will move yet again to the site where I will be living for the next two years.
Please keep in touch; I will try to bother you all enough so that you will not forget me.
