I have joined a learning program that teaches you to play the steel pan! This program is put on my this group called the Angel Harps which is a well-known pan band in St. George's. I selected the single tenor to learn how to play!
So far, learning how to play pan has been very tedious...but I hope that is will pay off in the end. Too bad I won't be here for Carnival next year to show off my new skills :(

We recently had our Mid-Service Conference for the Peace Corps in St. Lucia. A few of us from Grenada decided to take a few extra days and extend our trip so that we could also visit Dominica! It is so lush and beautiful there. I really enjoyed exploring The Nature Isle! Here are some pictures.

I was on my way down the road to stop by and say hello to my homestay family. Lots of cars were passing by but one of them came to a stop right in front of me. As I walked up to the passenger's window this man shouted out of his vehile asking if I wanted a ride. I explained that I wasn't going much further but thanked him for the offer. He then replied by saying, "alright, well knowing that you are working here and doing good things for my country, I wouldn't pass you straight."
That is probably one of the nicest things a stranger has said to me in a long time! I may never see this guy again, but in that moment, he totally made my day.

It was exactly one year ago that I left for my journey in the Peace Corps. I could have never imagined the things that I was going to learn during my service here in the Eastern Caribbean. Not a day has gone by that I have ever thought twice about being here. I am so glad that I made the decision to join the Peace Corps. This has been the most rewarding experience I have ever had.
On another note, our Grenada post has gained 8 new volunteers this weekend! Seen as how there were only 5 of us here before, we have more than doubled in size. I am really looking forward to getting to know all the new volunteer and to be able to share this wonderful island of Grenada with them.

I really enjoy moments when you get some time away from the city and all the busyness of life to just be able to enjoy the simple pleasures....like hiking in the woods.
