Last Day in the US!

So I am now in Philadelphia for staging. Getting in last night was arduous – it took an hour and a half to catch a shuttle to the hotel, but I am proud that I made it with essentially no help at all!

Tomorrow our group of 30-some business and health volunteers head out from New York (after busing into New York), and then we leave for Burkina!

My training will be for 2 months, so my service is actually for 26 months instead of 27 months. For anyone who would like to know, my address will be the following:

Christie Gross, PCT
S/c Corps de la Paix
01 B.P. 6031
Ouagadougou 01, Burkina Faso

For shipping/mailing, flat rate boxes are going to be the cheapest. Shipping can take from four weeks to several months depending on a variety of variables.

I will be out of contact until at least the 16th of October, as I will be traveling/adjusting to new life in Burkina, but hopefully I will be updating after that. I hear that the Peace Corps training center has wireless internet, so I am hoping that rumor is true.

I’ll talk to everyone in a couple of days!
