  1. Oh, Chris! How exciting! Congratulations! The program is very lucky to have you in the group! What an asset you are….but, then, we all knew that already!

    Enjoy….Take Care…Keep the “post” coming! What fun to read!

    With love,
    Sue

  2. Oh wow I’m so stoked for you! Finally the veil has been lifted. Do you know any other people locating to Arandis? Have you had contact with your “client” yet?

    So proud of you dad! I gotta say your smile and eyes are looking wider with every update, loving it!

    1. Thanks, Tyler! I’ve met the other PCV who is based in Arandis – she’s also a CED (business) volunteer and has been there for a year. But she’s working with another client so I don’t know how much I’ll be working with her. And I won’t meet my client until I’m sworn in and move there in mid-June. My nearest Group 43 colleague will be Andrew in Swakopmond, 60 km away.
