Chapter two of my GREAT Peace Corps Adventure – Settling in

So new language, new community, new daily routine, and now a new place to call home. Lots of changes, most surprising is that with all of these changes the time moves along very very quickly. I am really enjoying my work and finding it both satisfying and fulfilling. One really strange difference is being an older men in this socieity that values age and men (a little too much I fear) to be very enjoyable. I am called by many papik jan – dear grandfather. Of course I am one of very few men here in Vanadzor who visibly work at my age which may account for some of the deference. Either way my being here seems to be appreciated and as they all say, respected.

The attached video is the second chapter of the story….can’t wait to see how it all unfolds..
