We were officially sworn-in yesterday in a very nice ceremony held at the PC headquarters office here in Mexico. The ceremony and apero afterwards were a satisfying way to end the stressful training time, and then we, the new volunteers, basically just celebrated for the rest of the day.

So today is moving day, for round 2 of host families. I’m exiled to a suburb until I can find an apartment here in town, but that process has already begun and is my main focus until it is accomplished. It is still a stressful time, like moving always is, but at least there aren’t luggage restrictions for this move. I arrived with luggage that made it through two international air travel voyages, but now needs twice the number of bags.
