I’m very excited about returning to the South Pacific. I have not been back since 1992 – a long, long time. It has been so long that I don’t remember the heat, just how much I loved growing up in Nouvelle-Calédonie. Hopefully, I won’t find it too shocking.
Fiji will be interesting to be in a familiar, yet new surrounding. I have only been there twice when I was young, and don’t remember much beyond the beautiful trees.
I don’t believe I’ll register much of Fiji when I first land. I will have gone directly from exams, to packing, to training, to Fiji. I will have been of my “sleep cycle” for 2 weeks. Yikes. I’ll be longing for a bed!
I am looking forward to working with CCF. I learned of the organization and their work, while researching constitutional reform for my Rule of Law course. I chose Fiji as my country of focus and almost immediately stumbled upon mention of CCF.
In all the articles and chapters I read, CCF’s role in public participation and education projects surrounding the reform process and the new constitution. Learning that AP was seeking to send an intern to work with CCF was a very pleasant discovering.
OK, back to training!
