Staging Update

6 May

Sort of…

Staging is the initial orientation where you are introduced to your training group members and take care of some last minute trip details. Everyone meets in a predetermined US city (still don’t know where yet) to spend 2-3 days learning about your future home country.

For some reason, I had been thinking that staging lasted a whole week.  According to the Peace Corps wiki page, its 2-3 days.  And after talking to a returned volunteer, she says hers was only one day–one long, full day!

This came as a shock to me, although I’m not sure why.  I guess I thought there would be more time in the US getting to know my training group and preparing for our Lima departure. Not the case at all!  Apparently, it’s an extended, activity-filled, information-packed layover on our way to Peru.

So that’s the update — I’ll probably be in Lima as early as June 8 or 9. …!

P.S. – spent some time today snuggling my little gracieee
