My first week in Bali has been far from an Elizabeth Gilbert Eat Pray Love moment. In truth, it has been a lot of work. From in country orientation to language lessons, to figuring out how to get from our house to the VSO office there has hardly been much free time. But what I can tell you is that the people I have met so far have been incredibly friendly and most days I have a permanent smile plastered to my face. And just as the jet lag is slowly starting to disappear so is the rain (Did I mention its rainy season right now?). So for now I will continue to enjoy the daily routine of navigating the crazy streets of Denpasar on my bicycle, practicing my Bahasa Indonesia and getting to know my fellow VSO volunteers.
