doing another stint with the Peace Corps.

The cooperative my ex-husband, Mario, and I helped found, Cooperativa La
Esperanza de los Campesinos, is still being run by the members we trained.
They now process their own brand of coffee which is sold in Europe.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was a life changing experience. It also forever altered my perceptions of US
government policies and practices abroad.
