The Beginning- Seven Months on a Commune in Western Massachusetts

In IICD Massachusetts on July 3, 2007 at 7:54 am

Well, it has happened. I have arrived at the IICD training school in Williamstown MA. Goodbye Manhattan, hello commune.

I already feel my stress dissipating into thin air- poof! mountain vapor. It’s breathtakingly beautiful here. I literally live on top of a mountain and understand for the first time what was meant by “purple mountain majesty.”

After having spent most of my twenties in Manhattan, it is refreshing to experience another part of the country.

Well let’s see what happens. I’ve got seven long months of training ahead of me to prepare for my work abroad in Angola. Living on an international Danish commune- a first. Living and working in Angola- another first.

This is going to be a great year!
