Tomorrow is the Day!
Lots of changes, lots of frustation, lots of cultural differences in planning and organization, but for sure tomorrow we will be leaving. Our flight leaves at 8am from the Tijuana airport. We'll be travelling from Tijuana to Mexico City to Panama City to Santo Domingo. I'm pretty sure we arrive late tomorrow night. Today the leaders of the team asked me if I would be willing to be a student-leader. That means that I would help make decisions of what was going on for the team. Our 3 outreach leaders are all Mexicans, which means that they think and organize very different than I do in my American culture. I said that yes I would be willing to help them, because I feel that if I am able to be involved in the planning and decision making, my frustration level will be a lot lower, and I will be able to contribute my American thinking and organizational skills.
