  1. Hi! I will be a PCV in Panama soon too and want to know what is your work schedule like? Are you able to see other parts of the country on the weekends? Any more advice on things you wish to bring & how many bags of stuff did you use to pack all the essentials for 2 years?! Also, any big challenges you've faced so far? sorry for all the questions...just want to learn more! thanks! -Megan

  2. Ah, Megan, I completely forgot to respond to this comment until just now! Congrats on Panama though, and I'll see you this week!

  3. Hi Megan!

    I have learned that I will be expecting an invitation in December/January to serve as an agricultural extension agent in Panama in June 2014!! I would love to talk to you some more, because it is such a big decision to make and I want to make sure it's the right one for me!! and I would love to hear about your experiences too, I'm a little nervous because the placement is remote and 2-3 hours from a paved road so would love to talk to you about that.

    If you could shoot me a fb message I would really appreciate it!!!

  4. Hi Abby I'm in the process of filling at my application to become a PCV. I just wanted to know about any tips etc? I'm kind of nervous about my first essay because I've been wanting to become a PCV for awhile now and I'm finally getting the courage to go for it.
