The Rockaways, NY
Today I went to The Rockways for my first preparatory meeting for the GSE trip. Initially, there was a bit a paper work, Barbara, Rotarian and team leader had to go over with us: seeing passports, getting signatures, discussing travel insurance and return dates. Fellow team members were in attendance. Subjects covered and questions answered ranged from gifts for host families, food allergies to vocational visits and available houses of worship. Gabor, last year's team leader to the Phillipines, also in attendance, shared some of his expertise. At the end of the meeting, there was a short lesson on German culture and language. I have German language homework due at next week's meeting. Here's some homework, I'm looking forward to.
