Glenn and I are heading for South Africa with the Peace Corps* as of February 2nd! I wish I could give you the exact wording on what we'll be up to; but I've misplaced the little information brochure we were sent (we're packing, purging...it's a mess around here). So the gist of it is that we will be partnered with an NGO that is involved in some capacity with HIV/AIDS and working with children. You might say: That sounds vague! It is and I'm realizing that's how the Peace Corps operates. They also told us that our location for training will be 1-9 hours from Pretoria. Yes, very specific! But we're up for it and can't wait.
Our goal is to write updates, thoughts, and the general hi's and lo's of our South Africa adventure here. Enjoy!
