Off We Go
Several months ago I got my Peace Corps invitation. I was hoping for Africa, afraid to get freezing eastern Europe and love what I ended up with. I am going to the Republic of Azerbaijan. To be honest I did not even know where it was when I first heard of it. Turns out is is a secular Muslim country located on the Caspian sea. (the lighttan/cream colored one) They are surrounded by Russia, Georgia, Armenia and Iran. The only place in the country that seems volatile is the
Armenia /Azerbaijan border. They have been fighting for some time over an alcove of land outside Azerbaijan. I will be leaving June 24th and will gone for the next 2 years and 3months. I am excited but nervous as hell.
Well I don't really have much to say, just thought I should start with something. So far I am still just going through the grind of trying to get there. Paper work and studying. I feel sadly like I am back in school. I will try to keep utd.
