Tchau is how you say goodbye in Portuguese. And let me tell you it is not easy doing it with classmates who are now leaving for post.
Over the past 4 months, many of us have really gotten to know each other well. Now a bunch of classmates who did not require language training, are leaving. General training takes about 3 months, give or take. That’s a tip for those reading who wonder how long after A-100 you will leave for post. Language training will keep myself and many others here through the summer.
We have such a social class that we went to sports games, happy hours, parties, board game nights, and many other things together. A really awesome group. But reality is hitting, and first tours start now!
May you find your Nigerian prince. If you find him, can you ask for the $500,000 I sent him to be part of a unique investment experience that would make me wealthy beyond my wildest dreams? Hugs to Caity and Fiona!! Thanks @annefoss for the narration. #diplomat #diplolife #nigeria #goodbye #friends #statedepartment #fso #189a100 #dreamsdocometrue
This first group is leaving this week and I am very sad to see them go. They completed their ConGen training and are now off to post. While I am envious that they get to truly begin what we all took years to do, I am looking forward to summer in the States.
So to some of the most intelligent and awesome people I have ever met: Tchau. I am sure we will see each other across the globe, but never all together again. The last few months have been a blast and blessing!
