Hola a todos! 

So this blog is going to be easy on the eyes seeing as I just got back from Cartagena where several of us trainees went to visit Peace Corps Response Volunteers who have been working with several schools in the area. Peace Corps Response Volunteers are Volunteers who have already served their two years (and then some in most cases) who Peace Corps has then contacted to step up in times of need.  Many Response Volunteers actually came for the major flooding that Colombia has been experiencing and are now working as English Teachers in Cartagena, Barranquilla, and Santa Marta. 

This quick 1 day, 2 night trip was exactly what we needed!  A break from all the typical classwork we've been doing in Barranquilla and another adventure into the public school system!  We encountered very energetic students and teachers for the most part which is very encouraging for the work that we'll be doing.  So about 9 out of our group of 23 will be following up the work that the Response Volunteers have been doing and the rest will be starting our own programs in January.  Stay tuned for lots more about that later.  As for now, just look at the pretty pictures:

And, it was a good friend's birthday, so of course we made some time to learn a little bit about the night life in Cartagena too!

Miss you all so much! Thanks for taking the time to read my blogs, by the way, it really does mean a lot!
