There Are New Kids On the Block
Listen up everybody if you wanna take a chance
Just get on the floor and do the New Kids dance
Don’t worry about nothing cause it won’t take long
We’re gonna put you in a trance with the funky song
I’m not sure if the new trainees come with a funky song, but they sure are the new kids on the block. On the Peace Corps block, that is. We talked about the first sighting a few months back, and since then quite a few PCVs here have been answering questions and facebook-stalking the incoming class of future PCVs. Now that moment is here. Actually, that moment came a few days ago. They arrived on Friday night, with a few stragglers coming in today due to visa issues. That means we’ve increased the Peace Corps population in country by about 50%. Our new friends are now at the lovely Neapol Hotel, enjoying a welcome from some of our current PCV crew and the PC staff. It’s orientation time. Good luck getting oriented to Azerbaijan!
