chewing the fat

hello dear family and friends,
my eighth week in-country is coming to a close. i’m leaving for tres rios once more, the site of my retreat and orientation to costa rica, to participate in a two day workshop with my future counterpart. things are moving very quickly, and i will find myself in santiago de puriscal soon enough. saturday, in fact, for a five day visit. by then, i will have little over a week before the swearing-in ceremony.
i’ve been extremely tardy in my correspondences. eight weeks of peace corps training is quite a bit to digest, and i’ve still some bits stuck in my teeth. the most interesting experiences worth relating thus far are best saved for the confines of a letter and my muse has steadily grown unruly. pen and paper, song and dance, champagne flowing from rafters, general mind invasion and subsequent implosion….coming soon. stay tuned. stay classy.
