I took this photo on my site visit during training, when we visit our partner organizations and stay with our host families at our permanent site for the first time. It's the road to my new home. It's rocky, it's got rough edges, and you can't quite see where or how it ends, but it's clear there'll be some interesting and beautiful sights along the way. It made a great metaphor for where I was in relation to my Peace Corps service at the time. Only one month into training, I looked down the road ahead of me and knew that my journey through the next two years might not be smooth, but on the other end, a new perspective, a new person, awaits. And I can't wait to see where that road will take me.
