Site Change News
Received a call yesterday from my APCD explaining she would leave that afternoon to approve housing for my new site. I'M SORRY WHAT?! It was like we went from 0 to 60 in 5 seconds. Last week I was informed she was looking at sites. No word for a week, as is customary because she doesn't want to get my hopes up. But now we are looking at housing and I still know nothing. I know the province but not the town where the NGO is located or the language I will need to learn. And to make this even more WTF she wants to move me this Friday. Don't misunderstand me I definitely want a new site however I also need time to prepare and buy the supplies I need for my new home oh and yeah some more information. It feels rushed and hurried and I am afraid that I might find myself in another unhappy site situation. So last night I prayed for just a small window to breath and wrap my head around what's happening and today that prayer was answered. SA26's IST. The Peace Corps drivers must transport 75 people all in KZN and no one will be available for awhile. Thank you, now I have my window to buy supplies, fill out paperwork and think for a moment and learn more about where I will be placed.
