Countdown to India

Hi everyone,

The hour approaches!  It’s Tuesday night, and Thursday at 3:20pm feels closer and closer every minute.  My open suitcase on the floor, my dirty laundry pile getting smaller, adding and crossing things off my many, many lists…I’m having dejavu of last September when I did this all the first time.  I am more prepared this time I think, I am packing more gifts/donations/”stuff” than clothes, and hopefully the clothes I do bring will be comfortable and weather-appropriate.

Almost all packed!

As you can probably guess, I am really excited about this trip.  Last time I was just starting to get a little nervous about such a long flight, about arriving so late at night, and going to such a new and different place.  But this time I’ve been waiting since I got back to leave again, so I’m feeling nothing but excitement and anticipation.  I’ve kind of just been “hanging out” for a few months waiting for this trip, so I am more than ready to hit the ground running with my new job at Sangam.  I am going to be the Marketing and Communications Intern, so different than last time when I was a Sangam Volunteer.  I’ll post more about what exactly I’ll be doing later, once I find out more about my specific responsibilities, but the basic idea is to promote Sangam as a destination to Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world.  I’ll work with WAGGGS and the other World Centres on messaging and branding as well.

If you are someone who followed my blog last time I was in India, I promise to be more diligent with my posts this time.  I also think my posts might be more Girl Scout centered, I realized when I was in Chicago that there are actual Girl Scouts (and parents!) who are reading.  Of course I know what you really want to see are pictures, so I’ll be sure to upload those more often too.  As always, I love your input, so please tell me what you’d like to see more or less of.

Thank you all for reading, I am so looking forward to sharing this awesome journey with all of you!  As always, please share this with anyone you think might be interested, and please comment with any questions, comments, ideas or just to say hi!

Yours in Scouting,

Ana Cristina
