52 weeks at Post. Great bidding victory – we got our #1 choice!

22 Jul

So, today, as described earlier, we celebrate a year into our assignment. I wrote about challenges and victories. At lunch time, we were greeted with another victory: our next Post.

The Mirandas are going to their #1 Choice!

Here it is a hint about our next assignment:

Still no clue? Here’s another one:

Not much of a “flag person”? It’s fine. What about some Elementary School Geography?

That’s right! We’re assigned to La Paz, and couldn’t wait to tell everyone!

We’re so very happy: got dear friends in Bolívia, friends we made while posted in Africa. One of them is an amazing mom-wife-blogger, and a great inspiration for me… Wait for us, van Herksens, we’re coming!

    Congratulations! We’d love to go there too. Maybe we will meet you there. 🙂 BTW, our husbands were in the 151st together. We were the ones that had a baby during A100. I’m glad to have found your blog.

    OK, I am soooooooooo freaking excited. We are the van Herksens and we can’t wait for the Miranda’s to get here. Honestly, I can’t say that I have loved Bolivia, but the reason for that is that I have been lonely…but NOT ANYMORE!!!! I think the main reason I haven’t loved Bolivia is that I missed Mozambique so much and the family we made there. Transitioning with a newborn was rough, but just last week I vowed to do something new every week to make my Bolivia experience richer and now I can take notes and make plans for Raquel, Leonel and the Miranda crew…You really made my day, night, week!
