Enough scarcity. What’s it like down here? Well for one, it’s HOT. Humid is a better word, but not as much as I thought, but I shouldn’t write that too soon, I’ve only been here for five days.
I am in batch # 270 & there are over 60 volunteers in my batch alone serving both the Education & CYF (Children, Youth, Family) Sectors. (I am in the Education Sector.) The range of age varies with the youngest being 21 & the oldest being in their mid 60s. Anyway it’s great working & living with these people in these first two weeks before we all head out to our sites. Speaking of sites, I just found out where I’ll be stationed & I'll be in the province of Bataan teaching English in the secondary level, which is mostly high school.
The food here is terrific, but I don’t want to comment on the food until I get to my actual site. Although it’s good, most of the food is westernized, which is probably why there is no difference in taste.
Everyone, I am sorry I haven’t kept up with updates, but I’ve been trying to keep up myself. I now realize how little this blog might be, but I’ll try to keep you updated at home from time to time because I plan on staying all 27 months. Although my arm is in a sling, there’s no quit in me. I didn’t change my life 360 to come back after a week.
