On our hiking
In this video you can get a glimpse at the Peace Corps Ukraine office and see Rebecca ring the bell. It’s a tradition to ring the bell to close out your service with Peace Corps.

Rebecca had her service in Cherkasy, Ukraine.
After Rebecca rang the bell we flew to Tbilisi, Georgia.

I think that’s why people who live in the mountains are the happiest. To have access to such an abundance of nature is rejuvinating.
And that’s what I call rest! 🙂
On this video you can see just a little bit of Cherkasy city.
