Back in the Game

By Prodenbough
When you fall, get up, oh, oh...This time for Africa-Shakira
I'm heading back to Africa! Peace Corps finally cleared my re-instatement for Guinea; I leave on February 18th and my COS date is July 2011... turns out persistence can pay off sometimes. I've had some good times during my visit back in Seattle. Namely:- Showing up at my parents' workplaces to surprise them with my US arrival... priceless!- Seeing a show at the Showbox with Aaron- Almost making cookies with Lauren- Downing 99-cent margaritas with Mari in Portland- Dancing at R-place with Sam- Hanging out in Bellevue with Sophia- Eating delicious, delicious food at my parents' houseMy Seattle vacation lasted longer than I had anticipated, and I'll admit that I've been extremely anxious to get off the futon in my parents' basement and do something useful (like get kids excited abouts science). But this may be the last time I see Seattle for a very long time! While it may always be my hometown, it kind of doesn't feel like home anymore... maybe because I have someone special waiting for me in West Africa? In any case, my next post will be from Conakry. Cheers!
