There are two questions every returned Peace Corps volunteer grapples
with when he or she returns to the U.S. The first is, "How I can adapt
to life in the United States in a manner consistent with my Peace Corps
idealism and the lessons of my experience?" Sorry, I've got no advice
on this one except to say "go to a graduate school with a good placement
program". On the second question, however, I can be a bit more helpful.
The second question (and maybe I've got the order wrong here) is of course
"Where can I get BB in the U.S.?"
I've done some detective work on this one, and here's what I've found. First, brace yourself: it will cost you about $9 for six 12 oz. bottles. Now, there are three states with BB distributors, which is distributed under the name "Ngoma": Florida, California, and Washington D.C. (yeah, I know, Washington DC's not a state.) Each has one distributor who supplies to any number of retailers. These distributors should be willing to provide you with a list of retailers, or the one nearest you. They are:
For California: the Consumers Distributing Co., at 415-621-1828.
For Florida: the National Distributing Co., at 904-751-0090.
For Washington DC: the House of Wines, at 202-882-3333.
I will add additional states as I find out about them. By the way, if any of you cynics out there are wondering whether I get a kickback from anyone for passing this information on to you, the answer is "Don't I wish!"
