During the last week of April, I attended my final conference as a PCV. It was the first time that our group (M26, the 26th group in Moldova) had all been together since February 2012. We all met at the Peace Corps office in Chisinau, and then were bussed to Vada Lui Voda, a resort area along the Dniester River. During the 2-day conference we learned about what was required of us before we leave Moldova and head back home. Some of statistics we learned were 64 people were invited to Moldova, 55 actually came to Moldova in June 2011, 52 officially swore-in as volunteers, 34 were attending the COS conference and 4 will be extending for a third year. In my specific business development group, 12 volunteers swore-in and currently we have 9 volunteers, 6 of us will be COSing in July and 3 will be extending.
It was great to see everyone together, we were blessed with great weather and in two short months we will all be going our separate ways.
O zi buna!
