Life in the Peace Corps has been crazy busy the past few weeks. Summer time in Paraguay means lots of summer camps- and boy do I have a lot of updates!
But in the meantime, I have other updates from the internetz for ya! First off, I was recently published in Vida de Latinos, a Singapore-based magazine. I wanted to write about some of the really cool cultural legends from Paraguay, so I settled on 5 Bizarre Mythical Creatures from Paraguay. They really are crazy! Check out the article to learn more.
But what was the best part? I teamed up with one of my closest friends from high school and professional artist Chris Knight, who drew this awesome picture of Paraguay’s most famous mythical creature, Pombero.
Love it. Thanks Chris!
And this morning I woke up to an email in my inbox from a sweet Peace Corps Volunteer from Mozambique, Lisa Spencer, who selected me as one of her ‘winners’ of the ’2013 Peace Corps best blog awards.’ Here’s a little excerpt from her about my little corner of the internet:
Thanks Lisa! Wish I had a tiara and sash to give everyone the pageant wave.
Anyway, I’m back in Caazapá after what felt like weeks of traveling. I’ve been celebrating my glorious return to normality by eating a lot of salads, mangos, and running, while catching up on all of my work I’ve let slip by the wayside. Summer is ending soon, which means getting back into teaching entrepreneurship once school starts up again!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend! If you’re wondering what exotic thing I’m doing in Paraguay right now to finish up my Sunday, it’s watching the movie ‘Blue Crush’ on my computer while simultaneously studying for the GMAT. I know guys, super unconventional.
