Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I now work at the Indiana Center for Intercultural Communication (ICIC) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). www.iupui.edu/~icic
I also work as a freelance translator and interpreter, mainly for the Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township (MSDLT). I'm studying at IUPUI to get a BA in Translation Studies.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
My husband and I go back to Panamá and Natá about once a year to see the fam. I always go by my 2 bedroom pink house (not pink anymore) and talk with old CrediMujer contacts while I'm there. I try to stay out of the city as much as possible which is ironic because it was like paradise to me while I was in Natá. I lived in the city for a year after PC and I learned to hate the crowded buses, the long treks up the mountain to my house that I shared with 7 others, the pollution, and all the hustle and bustle.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Still looking for Mark Eastburn and his wife!
