Evacuation! March 15, 2020-?
This is just a quick note to let you know that I am safe. And, that I will let you know details as soon as I can. I, along with all 7000 Peace Corps Volunteers worldwide, am being evacuated back to the United States. It is a long story, and one that is changing by the minute, but the short version is this; we got the word on Sunday night, at 6:30 pm, that we needed to be at the consolidation point in Fes, by 1:30 the next day. I have been operating at a run since then. All PCVs of Morocco are consolidated in a hotel in Rabat. We are supposed to have a chartered plane taking us, and embassy personnel, back to the USA tomorrow night. From Washington DC we will be ticketed to our home of record. Tomorrow I will do my best to write more, but I know that some news programs are beginning to tell the story and did not want you to worry.
