Wow... It is hard to believe we are about at our one year mark. I remember last year doing the last minute crazy shopping and travelling constantly to say my final goodbyes to friends and family. It has been an amazing adventure since that stressful month of September.
Group 83 Samoa, as they say in Samoan aua le pepoli, don't worry. Things might be crazy right now but all of us here are looking forward to welcoming you into our amazing peace corps family. Samoa is an amazing place and I can't imagine a better place to spend two years of service.
When you travel to los angeles for staging, be sure to make friends with the Tongan volunteers... Since you never know when you might want a vacation...besides it us pretty cool to tell everyone you are time travelling.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message... I am not online constantly, but I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I hope you are excited to come to paradise!
