Swearing In

I am finally a Peace Corps Volunteer! Last week we had our swearing in ceremony, which was a big to-do in Bafia. All the local Elites were there, all the host families, all the trainers, and of course all the volunteers. There were speeches in French, Pidgin, and Fulfulde  (three of the many languages spoken in Cameroon). Afterward we had a luncheon with the host families, where they were thanked for having us. That evening the volunteers rented out a Hotel for our last night in Bafia, and we had a great party to celebrate the end of training and hang out one last time before we were sent all over!
