Good News AND A Request For Your Vote!

August 4, 2014

I have some great news AND I need your help!

I’m thrilled and honored to be a finalist in the Peace Corps’ “Blog It Home” contest, of more than 350 submissions from around the world!

A public vote will help determine the final winners- here’s where you can help! It’s 2 clicks and 10 seconds of your time.

1. Starting today August 4 through Sunday, August 10, go to my blog on the Peace Corps’ Facebook page and “LIKE” the photo to vote for me.

2. Share my blog and the Peace Corps’ Facebook page (and a thank you from me!) with all your friends and encourage them to vote too.
*If I’m among the winners, I’ll spend a week in Washington D.C. in September to participate in blog-related events at PC Headquarters and deliver a presentation about Paraguay and my service to youth in the D.C. area

Whether you’ve been following my journey for two years (thank you for reading!!), are a new reader, or visiting the first time because of the contest, I encourage you to look around my blog site and share with your friends. The goal of my blog is to share Paraguayan culture with folks stateside and around the world through stories, recipes, photos, history, etc (and part diary to help me record the amazing memories I’m gathering through this experience.) Humor, embarrassment, enlightenment, and entertainment are just some of the things you’ll find sprinkled throughout my essays and pages!

Also check out “Passage to Paraguay”, a blog by my dear friend, Rachel Wallace. Rachel is a superbly talented writer and photographer who is also a finalist from Paraguay and worthy of your vote as well! I guess this country is not short on great storytelling material or people to tell it.

Thank you for reading, sharing, and voting! I hope you’ve learned something new about Paraguay today because of it. Jajatopata! (until next time!)
