We're in the process of lots of goodbyes...And now we've had our first hello! Yesterday at Patagonia, the outdoor retail store where Nathan works, a fellow future volunteer, Betsy, walked in and told the staff she was leaving for the Peace Corps in Togo in September. Nathan just happened to be working and the two were able to meet! It's a small world, huh?! So we met this afternoon for ice cream at the local spot JP Licks. It was great to meet and talk with someone who is going with us. She's from Michigan and in town visiting her college roommate. I just hope we didn't overwhelm her with all our inside information (ie Nathan having gone before)! She just found out three weeks ago that she's going. Makes our process seem very long! Here we are...very exciting!! Hi Betsy!
