COS Conference/My Service in Pictures

17 08 2012

So this past week, my entire training class met for our COS (Close of Conference) meeting where we discuss things like resume writing, possible jobs to extend our service here in Tanzania, and just basically trying to look back and reflect on our service, what it meant, and how we’ll adjust back to life in the USA.  Peace Corps gives us treat and puts us up in a real nice resort for the week, I think because they feel bad for sticking us out in the bush for 2 years.  Needless to say, it was a blast to see everyone together for what is probably the last time for many people.  Even as I write this it is crazy to think that the majority of people I won’t ever see again here in Tanzania.  However, rather than rambling on like I usually do, I’ll just post our training groups slide show here, which is a collection of photos from all volunteers over the past two years.  I know it brought back a lot of memories for all us volunteers but I hope you enjoy it as well.

Hi Glenn,

Sorry to bother you.  My name is Ray Blakney and I am an RPCV from Mexico (2006-2008). I hope you’ve adjusted well to RPCV life. I am working on a 3rd goal project with the PC regional offices and the main office in DC to try to create an online archive to keep the language training material made all over the world from getting lost.  I have created a sub-section on the website my wife and I run Live Lingua with all the information I have been able to get to date (from over the web and sent to me directly by PC staff and PCV’s).  I currently have close to 100 languages with ebooks, audios, and even some videos. 
The next step for this project is that I am trying to get the word out about this resource so that it can not only be used by PCV’s or those accepted into the Peace Corps, but also so that when people run across material that is not on the site they can send it to me and I can get it up for everybody to use.  I was hoping that you could help getting the word out by putting a link on this on your site here, so that people know it is there.  There should be something there for almost everybody.  It is all 100% free to use and share.  Here is the specific page to what we call the Live Lingua Project:

Thanks for any help you can provide in making this 3rd goal project a success.   And if anybody in your group has some old material they can scan or already have in digital form, and want to add to the archive, please don’t hesitate to pass them my email.  Thanks and have a great day.

Watched sitting in my office. Actually said out loud, “Pick me! Pick me!” when came upon the slide saying, “Guess whose room this is?” Co-workers are concerned.

What a great digital scrapbook!

Yo dad, yea, a girl in my region put it together, she did an awesome job. Haha that guy was a volunteer that was a year ahead of us. He’s not actually a phillies fan, he said his friend just gave him the hat…

and no worries, i’ll give you the family discount rate on dance lessons when i get back.
