Peace Corps volunteers save 80% of international long distance call expense using callback!
Peace Corps volunteers save 80% of international long distance phone call expense by using international callback service to call family and friend in USA but enjoying US telecom technology and connection. The service I recommend is at
You can find the rate to call US from Jamaica is only 33.9¢.
When you go to http://bestcallback.net, look for the "Peace Corps Service" section to see some sample rates and then dig for the program
features and benefits. Please forward this message to your friends who are currently serving or planning to serve in that country so he/she can save $$$ when calling home!

I am looking for a teacher who served in Jamaica near Kingston I believe. It would have been in the early 1970's. Her name was Jane Walsh.
She was actually my 3rd grade teacher in Mauston Wisconsin just before she joined the PC, and I have wanted for many years to find her and thank her for the profound and lasting impact she had on my life.
I have no idea how to find her, or what her name might have changed to, but if anyone has information, it would mean a great deal to me.

Does anyone have the Patois language guide written for PCVs in 1962? I have a copy of a short (74 page) guide, "A Language Guide to Jamaica" written in 1962 by Beryl Bailey, but I am told there is a longer version somewhere. I would love to find this. Thanks.
