Receive notification that departure has been delayed; are given 1 week to make decision

Announcement Date: January 22, 2015

Our departure has been delayed from an 8/26/15 departure to a 1/12/16 departure.  The reason: our training class will be embarking into new sites which are less densely populated, where community integration will be very important, and the Colombian Peace Corps staff wanted more time to prepare our sites for our arrival to ensure a better experience for us.  My existential nightmare (and pro/con list building) begins.
