Group 80

The newest group of Peace Corps arrived in country yesterday. We saw them briefly for dinner at Italiano's. If I am remembering correctly, they had a pretty hectic day: getting of a 10-hour international flight at about 5:30 in the morning, moving into their new, temporary homes at the hotel, participating in an 'ava ceremony and beginning their language training. By the time we saw them, I am sure they were wiped. Most of them turned in early, leaving as a group at around 8 pm or so (oh, I remember the days when we only travel in a herd). One brave soul stuck around and he was still hanging with the veteran volunteers when Cale and I called it a night.

We will get to meet them more on Friday at their fiafia.
