Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
We were "deployed" during the first year,so things were not really very organized. We learned a lot, but don't think we were able to give much in return to the Filipinos we lived and worked with. Lots of boredom and lowgrade depression..not enough food to eat. Had no radio or other meand of communication. Did not know that the Cuban missile crisis had occurred until two weeks later! It was a grand experience, however, and I lived in other countries thereafter as the wife of a Foreign Service Officer.
