I was so amazed at all the beauty that I had seen throughout my journey. But I managed to take as the great adventure of a lifetime. As soon as I arrived in Dushanbe, the immigration officer informed me to apply for a visa. Then, it was done accordingly. In this point of doing so, I suddenly said to myself that the system is not that organize compared in my own country. In the other hand, I realized that’s the main point of being here. A goal that makes me invited to go for the change in their lives.
A new experience began when I passed through the immigration booth. Prior to that, one of the immigration officers assists me but to a different booth. Eventually, I manage to read the immigration for the foreigners. As soon as I got my luggage, I went to the final exit booth. Then, I saw my name on a board and held up high by a taxi driver. I was so overwhelmed that finally, I am in my final destination that is Tajikistan. The driver assisted me through the car, and he gave me a letter. The letter came from Program Manager. I am really surprised by the letter, and then they gave me a mobile phone to call my family from the Philippines. When the car mobilized along the road, I am really observing the place and it was peaceful. It is totally different the way I pictured it out from my country Philippines.
As what scheduled, it is Monday, 30th of August 2010. I was dropped in the guest house to rest. They fetched me again around 12:15 AM to have a short briefing. I was delighted that the Program Manager went to the guest house to orient me on how to go to a restaurant and going to the program office.
