“You may find yourself in another part of the world … And you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” -Talking Heads, Once in a Lifetime
I’m well into my second week in Kosovo, and things were starting to feel more routine (in a good way). But yesterday was a doozy — four back-to-back Peace Corps training sessions that dealt with some pretty heavy topics. I began to feel the weight of this 27-month commitment again.
Thankfully, today was an easier, happier day. I am still thinking of all of you, though. When I lived in Chicago, I’d miss my family in Michigan. And when I would visit Michigan, I’d miss my friends in Chicago. Now I miss everyone at the same time. But your support has meant a lot to me.
Today, I managed to find a few postcards at a little bookstore. They happen to be The World’s Ugliest Postcards. Kosovo is gorgeous — I don’t understand why it would be hard to take a decent picture of it. But, there ya go. In a few weeks, some of you will be receiving these crappy postcards in the mail. As for the rest of you, don’t feel left out. My goal is to send out a few postcards per month. So if you don’t get one soon, you’ll get one within the next 27 months. It’ll probably be ugly.
I took this one-minute video last week while riding on a bus. It’ll give you an idea of how it looks to drive through Kosovo. Talk to you all tomorrow, my last post for the week. 🙂
