PCV Cassie

Well folks, I´ve made it. I am now a full blown volunteer. I was able to pass my language test and now I speak Intermediate Mid level Guarani and Intermediate Low in Spanish. I can´t believe my Guarani is now better than my Spanish.

As Will Farrel said in Elf, ¨That´s Shocking¨

So I leave for my site on Tuesday. I am currently in Asuncion staying at a sweet hotel with my other 40 newbies, along with some oldies from our sister G, G-22. My group is actually G-25. G is our sector and my family. There are 3 waves of volunteers that come to Paraguay per year. So as we are swearing into Peace Corps as the newest "G", G-19 is signing out.

I've also got a phone now! I will expect tons of phone calls to me, as it's free to recieve calls! It is NOT free for me to make calls, so I might be calling on your phones and hanging up.

My phone number is 595-971-702-151.


Well, I will write later as I have to go get my ginormous bags back to my hotel and get ready for tomorrow. Tomorrow is the first day of my next 2 years. I can't believe it. It's a little crazy just thinking about it.

I think I'll go get some movie popcorn and Pizza Hut to celebrate!!!

HEy, I just talked to you and it cost $1.64 per minute! I will definitely investigate the international plan. Or I could just come and get you.

P.S. Put a + before that number.

` They have Pizza Hut in Paraguay?!

` Good luck, 'Miss G'!

Hey Cass,

I am just teaching my mom how to do this. You know her, computer challenged (among other things!)

Hey lady,

Tried to call you today (on the 23rd) at about 7pm my time. I am dying to chat with you pretty lady!

By the way, if you get a phone card off of the internet, it is a LOT cheaper than calling from home! Let's start CCIP (Call Cass In Paraguy!) Keep it up folks!

Kisses and merry Christmas!
