Panamerican Proceeding

Lend me an ear and you will hear the rants and raves of this volunteer. "Nothing is stronger than the heart of a volunteer" says Lt. Col. James H. Doolittle (parden the pun), but perhaps no one is crazier either. Why do we care so much? Herein lies a glimpse of my Pan-American experience.

Glimpse of Peace Corps Life

As Moritz Thomsen pointed out: people here aren't lazy, they're exhausted. Similarly, I'd rather not consider myself lazy. But I tell you what, that hammock looks pretty darn inviting right now. If idle hands are the devil's workshop, what is an idle mind? An idle spirit?

I knew this trip would be great preparation for the P.C. but I also didn't know that it would be so different either; at least in my head. I will probably find out that it will be exactly the same. I need to make lists.
1) Wake up
2) Go to school
3) Don't go to the bar
4) Don't be so lazy....I mean....exhausted

In Granada

I'm in Granada, grinding on my Spanish. I've done a lot of day trips in the afternoons; just enjoying a stress'less' life thus far. Oh yeah, I'm still alive too. I'd write more but I'm a novice still and the commands are all in Spanish and I don't even know what they mean in English.
