I realized that some of you did not get my email on Thursday, August 22, saying that I was heading home. So here it is:

Friends and Family,
Well, I am being sent home and will be leaving at 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. I will have to update you all on the conditions of my departure once I arrive to Raleigh in a few days.
As you might imagine, my Thursday was a very busy day. I had tons of government Peace Corps forms to fill out, several medical tests to complete, had to close my account at the bank, visit the post office, and meet with just about every Peace Corps Guyana department. I also had to (and wanted to) tell as may friends (Guyanese and Peace Corps) as I could goodbye. I was lucky to have a lot of support.
Friday was just as crazy. Peace Corps picked me and some of the GUY8 volunteers up at 2:30 a.m. We then had an hour drive to the airport and made it in time to catch our 5:30 a.m. flight. The rest of my day was spent hoping from one airport to the other: Georgetown to Barbados to Miami to Atlanta to Raleigh.
So I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to update you all via my Monologue the last few days. But I hope this helps you get caught up. I’m sure I’ll provide you many more details regarding my last few weeks as a Peace Corps trainee shortly. Thanks again for all of your support.
