Today is the last day of the AV international orientation. We have spent the weekend in Ocean City, New Jersey where the Augustinian Friars have a vacation home. Most of our time has been spent building community and understanding logistics. We met and spoke with several alumni of the program who gave us tips and information about what to expect and how to behave culturally appropriate. Besides Chantelle and Britt (my community members) we are here with Caitlyn, Brian, and Jimmy (the South Africa volunteers) and Pat, Shannon, and Hannah (the program directors. All of us leave tomorrow and while we are sad to leave the others, we couldn't be more excited!
Here's a picture of all the volunteers. I'm between Chantelle and Britt:
