An Abrupt Change of Plans

Hey, so here's how it is: An opportunity has come along, at the very end of my service, to pull together an agricultural program for Peace Corps focused on the cashew crop. It's a nice piece of work, and I'd really enjoy doing it. If all goes according to plan, and that's not 100% sure, I'll be flying home December 15 and returning to Ghana sometime in late February. I'll be working to pull together a program of agricultural skills, small-scale processing projects, and business skills for PCVs and farmers in cashew growing communities. I don't love the idea of being away for another year, but in all honesty it just sounded like too much fun to pass up. But, in the short term, I'm coming home, got the plane tickets and everything. December 16th I'll be back in Maine : )
