Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Those were the most value-shaping years of my life. I wish I had served another term, and been able to give more. I am thankful for the life-altering and eye-opening experience. Wish I hadn't missed that Ali-Foreman fight.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
All of the "guys" from the Office des Routes group and any volunteers from 1973 - 1975.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
It only takes about 20 years to finally stop thinking of your host country as "home."
