It is official. I am going to Morocco.

The invitation arrived in my mail box this past weekend. I called the DC office today and "accepted the invitation with great honor and excitement". I leave for orientation on September 8th, land in Morocco on September 11th, and am officially sworn in as a Peace Corp Volunteer on November 26, 2007.

This is all very overwhelming yet very fulfilling knowing it is finally really happening.

Reality hits hard.

Hi Kristin.
I have been nominated for the same program in Morocco leaving in September! I still have to finish my dental exam, so I haven't been invited yet, but it's neat to run across your blog.

Congratulations! I was a youth development volunteer in Morocco, left in 2003. It's a beautiful country that I miss every damn day (especially now that I'm studying for a bar exam...I would MUCH rather be chatting with my host sister over couscous). If you have any questions, my email is
