Still in limbo. Traveling and seeing friends and family.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Having been a serious traveler for over 25 years, I have never encountered a country remotely similar to Kiribati. It was a challenging and liberating experience. Now that I know I can survive in a country that has virtually nothing except fish and coconuts,I know I can survive anywhere.
