Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After several years working in non-profit voluntary agency field, I
went to law school and for the last 20 years have practiced law in
the San Francisco Bay Area.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
This had a strong influence on my life - living in and learning to
appreciate another culture, trying to do something "good",
becoming more self reliant - all very posoitive influences for me.
And for the Turks? I think the opportunity for peoples of other
cultures to know one another on a daily life basis is important.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Joan Baxter - my roommate in Zonguldak. Same training group.
