I spoke with her while she's en route to JFK. She's pretty happy with the team of volunteers she's with--already made friends. She's the youngest of the bunch (as she said, "No surprise there."). About a quarter of the volunteers are retirees.
They will stay in Amman until the 28th, then move to Mafraq for 2 months in language school.
She's feeling better (she's had a cold), and she's looking forward to what's ahead.
My Wild Thing.
