I made it to my site yesterday, I recieved my official Peace Corps phone and my official `peace corp assignment! The site is named Las Flores and it is actually a barrio of a larger town named Constanza. I actually live in another part of Constanza called the Spanish Colony (conolia español). There is a group of youth here called the Ecoclub and my project partner is the president of the branch in this province. The group has been pretty cool so far, from what I can make of it, it is a Argentine foundation that works with youth and the environment. The kids here asked for a Peace corps volunteer for leadership and here I am. Between the five ¨colonies¨´ in Constanza there are about 100 youth, tomorrow I get to meet with the leaders of the five groups here and we get to plan out an activity for saturday. There are eight k thru 8th grade schools here and one highschool. I talked to a principal and a few teachers today about teaching chemistry and physics to the students in the highschool and also the teachers at the elementary school. I am really excited to spend some time in the classroom because when Jenna and I taught a class on Earthday last week we totally rocked it. However, right now everything is still very much up in the air and I don´t really know where or what I will be doing in the next few months. I do know that today we went to a soccer game and I am getting on the ecoclub team when they start it up, which will be sweet.
Also, this town is very much like portland and a little bit like Flagstaff too. We are way up in the mountains and there are a lot of pine trees and a lot of rain. This area is also known as the breadbasket of the carribean, which means there are a lot of fruits and vegies being grown all over... the only bad part about it is that they grow a lot of onions so it smells kind of like onions and I am not a fan onions.
