PCV Mike

I have finally done it. I made it through my 9.6 weeks of training and now have become an official Peace Corps Volunteer.  Friday we went to the ambassador’s residence and had a very nice ceremony, and we took the oath as a group and receive our certificates.  The ambassador spoke and gave us a few words of inspiration from her own Peace Corps experience.  The country director spoke along with a few other people. 

I now have a couple days of classes then shopping for supplies that I will need in my new mud hut.


  1. Hi Cousin! Ah, I'm a bit jealous, it looks and sounds like you're on vacation, no?! You look great, seems like you're right at home and in your element. Just thought I'd check in and see how you are doing. I am going to have to remember how to do the snail mail thing and send you a padded envelope of some sorts with scooby snacks or something semi-original stuffed inside. Well, I hope you've started carving your giant wood utensils. I love that picture you got, I want one!!! okay, take care and I will be checking in on ya again = )
