la la land

I am in the lobby of the Four Points Sheraton LAX. I am not staying at the Four Points Sheraton LAX, but this hotel has free Wi-Fi and my hotel next door does not. That’s an example of the ingenuity Peace Corps looks for in their volunteers.

These two days have been a whirwind of emotions. Adrenaline fueled the first few hours in in LA, but by the time staging meetings got going, I had calmed down some. Since yesterday morning, I have completed Peace Corps staging, saw Katy for fifteen mins (10 mins of that was hugging), ate In-and-Out (I dipped french fries in my vanilla shake!), ate a Cadberry Boost bar sent to my hotel by Erin, and met many very cool people. Last night we went to a hotel bar for dinner, but tonight we are taking a shuttle to Manhattan Beach for some food and beverages. Tomorrow is on to Mongolia.


  1. I can’t believe how much I’m going to miss you … I’m so excited, and I’m dying to hear how things go!
