Hello Again

Hey all, sorry for the delay between posts. I've been busy traveling through Russia and Azerbaijan the past month or so. That and my computer doesn't work so well anymore (I got it to turn on for the first time in a month yesterday) and the phone line at my house doesn't work anymore at all so I'm on the computer at work. Which means this will be a quick post.

My trip to Russia was awesome. I'll work on getting some pictures up and writing some stories down and hopefully I can get those posted early next week. Highlights included me trying to order food in Russian, blasting off into space in a real space shuttle in Moscow's Gorky Park, napping in parks in Latvia, petting a real live bear, calling America from Estonia, playing guitar for a group of Russians at 7 in the morning after a night at the bars, and many other tales. It was awesome. I also gained about 10 pounds by consistently eating 2 or 3 times the amount of food as my travel companions Bethany and Rachel combined. It was amazing and kind of disgusting at the same time.

After Russia, I went to my COS (Celebration/Close of Service) Conference that PC throws for departing volunteers. It was a lot of fun and a good chance for all of us to get together in a big group. This weekend is obviously the Fourth of July and I'll be heading to a friends house tomorrow. Should be a good time. I hear they have a pool so it'll be just like home. Anyways, I should go for now. Have a good Fourth, everyone!

After being through the Peace Corps, what is your overall opinion of the organization and the impact being made on the host countries and the PC volunteers?
