Sworn In Today!

Steve Eric Tarah and Kaan at Swearing InWe are officially Peace Corps Volunteers!  The swearing in ceremony was moving and a truly happy time blended with mixed emotions around not seeing so many great people for a while.  We will reconnect in early December and I hope most, if not all, of the training staff will be there.

After the ceremonies this pic shows me, Eric and Kaan with the CEO of the Namibian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI), Tarah Shaanika (in suit).  We are the three volunteers assigned to work with NCCI, but in different regions.  I also met the Regional Director of NCCI for my region.  His name is Nicollas Links.  He was surprised that my name is Link.  He thought it was an error on the paperwork!  I told him that two or more links make a chain and we would work well together.

At 7:45 Friday Nicollas will pick us up and drive us to Keetmanshoop, about a 5-hour drive.  So we will be “settling in” tomorrow afternoon.  “Don’t touch that dial.”
