LPI Is Over…Swearing In Next
But now it’s over, and I learned this afternoon that I scored Intermediate Low. At least I passed, and I'm grateful for that! The rest of our time this week will be spent on administrative details and preparation for moving to our permanent sites. On Wednesday morning, we swear-in as PCVs (Peace Corps Volunteers), and that’s when our service officially begins. Up till now, we’ve been mere PCTs (Peace Corps Trainees). The next day, everyone fans out to their permanent sites.
For me, this is a little easier. I go back to the same village, where I already have friends and have been welcomed into the community – some people already call me “Bouri,” my host family’s last name. But there’s still the departure of my CBT mates. Maybe it’s time to start thinking of a reunion.
