Leaving for Kazakhstan

We have been training for one day in Washington DC and are about to head off for Kazakhstan! This will be the last (and almost the first) post from the United States!! Of course, I had prepared a list full of detailed goals before even getting here, but we talked about aspirations and anxieties today and I realized that I am more sure about this experience than I ever have been! I am so excited!!!

I hope that I can learn both Kazakh and Russian and am hoping to be in a small, rural village living with the goats! I really want to get in there and get dirty!!

Well- I will let you all know how things are going as soon as I can and you can email me at if you want a more personal note (but I don't know when I will read it or respond!)

I wish you all well and will miss you guys! Thanks for the support!
