It has been a year of ups and downs. I started with a small group of travelers to begin with, and then some of the parents got nervous about the Zika virus and sending their daughters to the Caribbean, so I am left with three girls for the trip. After the initial disappointment, there are some real benefits from having such a small group, and I am really looking forward to the trip. Since we are traveling to a new place, it was very important to still keep the commitment to be there. One of the students wants to be a teacher, so this will be an excellent experience for her. The other two are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It will be a great learning experience for everyone.
We will be switching to the trip blog, so please check there once we start to travel. Here's to a great experience in a new place!
