Hello from Zilina, Slovakia!
I arrived here safely last Wednesday afternoon. Since then, I’ve been busy getting to know the other interns, meeting the youth group we’re working with for the first KECY (conversational English camp), and trying to get all the paperwork, etc done for my visa.
It’s been great to be back in Slovakia (it’s been three years since the last time I was here), to reconnect with old friends, meet new people, and to have a chance to practice speaking Slovak again!
This upcoming week we’ll spend a couple of days promoting the camp in high schools, and then on Wednesday we head for Prague. In Prague we’ll begin The Amazing Race, where we’ll complete challenges and race from one side of the Czech Republic to the other, competing against intern teams serving in other countries throughout Eastern/Central Europe.
Over the next couple of blog posts I plan to introduce you to each of the other interns/team members, so check back soon for more!
