November Updates!

Yes, yes, we are long overdue for an update on where things are with this rather ambitious project, so let me fill you in:

Volume I skipped a person by accident, so it is on its way to Mallory A. in Madagascar and then will travel back up north to Morocco for a brief stay with Ryan S. (last country in Africa for that journal!).

Volume II has left S/Central America and is on a journey to Bulgaria, and will then go to Africa!

Volume III seems to have had quite an adventure! Judson M. mailed it from Kyrgyz Republic to Kyle L. in Thailand back in June only to learn weeks later that it had been sitting at his post office after a failed delivery attempt! He resent it and as of now there is no word as to whether or not it has made it to Thailand, but fingers crossed it makes it there soon and that the second, and not third time, will be the charm!

Volume VI is still in S/Central America and has hopefully found its way to Kim A. in Peru and will soon be sent off to the last S/Central America PCV, Jamie A., in El Salvador.

Now for some bummer news:
A few members of our project have Early Terminated (ETed) their service, so we have a couple of new members to our little project! Jeremy H. will be taking over in Botswana and Amy E. will be our new Bulgaria contact! Currently, we are also waiting on word for newbies in Zambia** and in Ecuador. While I am bummed to have to replace people, I really hope they are enjoying their time back in the "real world" and I am excited to learn more about our new project members!

**UPDATE: Our Zambia PCV, Jessica H. was medically separated and there is a chance for her to be reinstated. However, she will still be receiving the journal a second time even if she is still in the states so that the journal can have a piece about her particular experience as being a MedSep'd RPCV. Yay Jess!
