I recieved my invitation for this program a few days ago. I am EXTREMELY happy that I will be moving to Eastern Europe. Until this week though, I have never given too much thought to this part of the world. In school I studied Latin American countries and lived in North America and Asia. Part of me is absolutely THRILLED to learn about a new people, culture, history, food, environment, geography, language, e.t.c. The other half of me just has NO idea what to expect out of this experience. I think that just adds to the excitment though!!
I would also really like to try and meet some other volunteers who will be joining me on this program.
