I'm am writting this as an OFFICIAL PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER!!!!

after a grueling 11 weeks of language training, cultural training, technical (ie-job know-how) training and all the other "wonders" that are pre-service training...I have made it! Now there are just 2 more years, right??!?!?!?!?

our swearing-in ceremony was lovely. Every year, one of the volunteers gives a speech in Bulgarian, and my site mate Anna was chosen to do the job! her speech was fantastic in english and in bulgarian, earning her many accolades from fellow volunteers, bulgarian speakers, and the Honorable John Beyrly himself! (our ambassador) the speech was so good, actaully, that the Ambassador is planning to post it either on the Embassy's webpage, or on the state departments- wow, good job anna!!!

again, i know i always promise picutures, but I defiantely want to send y'all pictures of my friends here and to see how different we all look after 11 weeks!!

keep in touch, and keep those text messages coming- i love them!!
