I spent this week in Chengdu attending Peace Corps events. I first participated in the Sichuan counterpart workshop over the weekend where I got to meet and work with other teachers in the province who are counterparts or partner teachers of other Peace Corps volunteers. On Monday all the volunteers in China came in to attend the Close of Service Conference which marks the beginning of the end of our time in Peace Corps. We talked about transitioning back to life in America and the logistics of finishing our service like how to wrap up projects and say goodbye to our communities. We also did a lot of paperwork, a Chinese test, and doctor and dentist visits. I am preparing to leave China on July 7th and have a lot of things to do before then.
