Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was the best preparation for graduate school that I could have possibly had at that stage of my life. It was perhaps the best use I have made of a 2 year period in my life and in many ways I am sorry I did not stay for 2 more years and attempt teaching in the new Malay language science streams that were just starting in Kelantan.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
any others from Kelantan in the 66-68 period.
