Thank you so much for the nice compliment. I am so jealous! Madagascar! wow. You are going to have some amazing experiences! Don’t think too hard about it, and enjoy the ride. It’s going to be great, and the time will seriously fly. Looking ahead 26 months sounds like a huge amount of time, but it really, seriously flies. I cant wait to read all about your adventures, trials, and tribulations there. You are going to be great!
It has been six months since I have completed my service in the Peace Corps and returned to America, and in full disclosure this is the fourth attempt I have made at writing a final blog post to sum up my experiences, convey what I have learned, and generally distill 26 months of service into one final post.
I will tell you right now that it is impossible. There is no way for me to accurately convey all of the life changing experiences, from the mundane to the earth-shifting, that I have experienced. Nor will there ever be a way to tell how much of an impact I have might have had on the people of my communities in Namibia.
