Getting to know each other poolside

A bright sunny day on beautiful Crete, Betty, Perry, Team Leader, Sam, and I enjoyed orientation poolside at the hotel. We got to know each other, discussed our goals for the two weeks (experiential, personal; expand horizons, brighten future) and learned about the after-school English program we will be working on.

Perry, Betty, and I took a beautiful drive to Anogia Village for some shopping and local culture and had the opportunity to witness a bride and groom walking to the Greek Orthodox Church to get married. The entire village joined in.

Message for the Day: “Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are ‘priceless’.”
