Tonight, I am attending a cocktail party with officials from the government of Vanuatu and USAID. This is quite exciting since I will be able to network with other world travelers and others invested in community empowerment. I'm very excited about meeting and learning from them. This coming Saturday through next Thursday I will be staying with a current Peace Corps Volunteer on the island of Espiritu Santo. There, I will observe classrooms and learn more about the culture and education here. My host family has told me not to go to outside at night to avoid “black magic.” I told them I wouldn't, but I'm not too concerned about it.
