So, first blog entry from Suriname. So far so good. I feel like we're just at summer camp in some developing country. I really don't feel like I'm in Suriname. I've walked to town a few times, but we really haven't had much time to explore. I'm super excited (ok, nervous too) to go to our Community Based Training in Brokopondo. Then I'll be staying with a family and I'll really get to see a bit more how things are.
Everyone is super awesome so far. We all seem to be getting along really well and bonding and all that stuff.
We learned about our possible sites yesterday. It was all a little overwhelming. It's really hard to try to choose what you think you'd work well in with a description of a place. Without actually being there, it's next to impossible to know. But we'll find out our sites on Monday, which should be super exciting.
