Wednesday, 2:25 Cyprus Time
In a village outside of Nicosia
"I’ve got this," I thought, as I rode the bus into the capital. After interning at the State Department headquarters last spring, I thought that this new internship, at the U.S. Embassy in Cyprus’ capital, Nicosia, would start off pretty much the same. I expected the usual tours of the building, orientation, and introductions, then starting on my work as an intern. Simple.
But not this time.
