Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
after PC got my BA; moved to DC; subsequently moved to Alaska and love it
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It truly changed my life. I never worked so hard or had so much fun. I am still
close with people I trained with. My service got me interested in languages and
literacy. Looking back on it now, although the world and my geographical area
of service have come a long way, I still think Americans in general have no idea
of how most of the world lives.

Any message for returned volunteers?:
Buckle up. You know a lot more now, and a lot more than people who aren't
RPCVs, but you don't know everything, so don't act like you do.
