Too early?!

Is it too early to start my countdown for my next vacation?!

I think not! I can't help but get excited that I'll get to see my parents in May (and some of their friends, too) AND go to Greece. (After I get my official PC approval, of course!) I can already picture myself strolling the streets of Athens and the beaches of Mykonos.

From where I live I'm about an hour north of the Greek border but I've never been. Can't wait to finally go!! The joys of Peace Corps Bulgaria... definitely can't complain about the location!

Speaking of Peace Corps, my English classes start back up tomorrow and we're working on building up an "English library" along with the already present Bulgarian language library. Hopefully we'll be making some good contacts that will donate lots of easy to read English books to the village! We're also looking at doing a "Dental Day" at the Kindergarten where a local dentist will come, check out their teeth, and the kind people of Colgate donate some goods! Here's to January...

Sounds like an amazing January with so many great things going on. Good luck with it all!

What kind of books in the easy to read English variety? Picture books? Dick and Jane type? Suggestions? Or do you think you'll get donations locally?
PS: Cowboys won first round of playoffs for the first time in years...beat the Eagles 34-14 and looked really good...just so you know. You might want to add Miles Austin to your boyfriend list...

SOOOO much fun! I want to go to Greece too. I think it is great that you are building a library for our Bulgarian peeps and that Colgate is helping out with teeth of the Bulg. I love you and wished you would have answered your phone today. K? Thanks. Bye.
