Still working in Africa--first in Angola, now in Sudan and Kenya.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It's a cliche, but it was definitely the toughest job I ever loved. Plus I met and married my wife (neither a local nor an American PCV) there!
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any updates from people are welcome and if you're ever in Nairobi, Kenya, please let me know!
