This photos was taken shortly after the Peace Corps swearing-in ceremony in Bulgaria on June 10, 2011. After the ceremony volunteers new and old and their host families and friends went out to the Plaza for music and dancing. As a brand new Peace Corps Volunteer, I joined my pre-service training host-mom in the audience. We decided that listening to music wasn't enough - we wanted to dance too. 'Z' is a "Singing Baba" in her village and is dressed in traditional clothing. The "Singing Babas" performed earlier in the schedule. I shared this photo on my blog with my friends and family in America and the world.
