After saying goodbye to the parentals, we spent a day and a half in LA at Staging. Staging is basically a run through of essential paperwork and safety and security info.
We left LA at 945pm on Sunday and arrived in Tonga around 11am Tuesday morning.
Bus on the way to the airport!
The Nuku'alofa airport...not sure if you can tell in this picture but there were a few dozen people cheering for us when we stepped off the plane-a really amazing welcome!
We spent four days at Selas guesthouse upon arrival. It was a great time to bond with the team and adjust to the crazy idea that Tonga is our new home for the next 27 months. This is a picture I took while walking from Selas to the peace corps office.
