Six months of unemployment, and just received a good job offer. I will be the Managing Editor for the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences, an employee of the University of Pennsylvania.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I miss the Bulgarian tradition of Baba Marta. On March 1, everyone exchanges "martenitsas" (bracelets/pins made of red and white string). You wear them until you see a stork. (Storks begin to arrive in Bulgaria in March.) Then you tie the martenitsa on a blossoming fruit tree or put it under a stone.
