A New Year, A New Adventure

As 2011 is finally behind us and the end of my Peace Corps service is in sight (just over two weeks) I can't help but wonder about what the future holds.

Reflecting on the last 3 years of my life there are various things that stick out in mind:

* My first few nights in Kenya: traveling and seeing elephants on day2
* Getting arrested in Kenya
* My home in Garissa
* My companion, friend, and pet Baraka (English: Blessing)
* My Peace Corps family

...As time wraps up and I know I will soon write up the last three years of my life into the description of service (the only official document of my Peace Corps service) I can't help but feel that a short document can't hardly capture what the last three years of my life.

At this time I certainly am feeling a bit sad that this chapter in my life is ending, and yet, I am also very hopeful for the next chapter of my life. Before long, I'll be visiting my good friend and current PCV Chad in South Africa. From there, I'll head off to Peru where hopefully I will also be able to connect with other PCVs and continue growing as my life of service continues to unfold.

I see the end of this chapter in my life fast approaching and I also see the door that lies behind the closing of this one. What will I find behind the next door? Only time will tell.
