I think Peace Corps and the people I was with impacted me more than I probably impacted them.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Lots of people!
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Readjustment is miserable, but it will get less painful, given time. No one does it the same way, so do it the best way you know how for yourself. Also, you can't seem to shake off Peace Corps in some ways, it becomes a part of you in the strangest ways!
