Swearing In & El Dia de Asunción
And with that, we are now all officially volunteers. Who would have ever suspected that it takes so much hard work and dedication just to become a volunteer?
The past 10 weeks were exhausting, exciting, and most importantly, infinite amounts of fun. Our host community could not have welcomed us more than they did. Gracias Villeta, we are so grateful. I already miss the haunted house, the river Paraguay with its view of Argentina, sharing pizza with the endless slew of visitors at our home, and our two host sisters, Anahi and Paz, who always provided us with laughter and good times.
I am also so proud of our host mom, who spoke eloquently on behalf of all the host parents at our swearing-in ceremony.
