Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Life after Peace Corps Malaysia: Sarawak was very interesting but not able to come to some kind of resolution on personnal relationships still outstanding; life after Kingston has gotten rough because I think I am somehow caught up in anti-Peace Corps tide that is sweeping through some places. This tide perhaps has nothing to do with my job assignment at UHWI.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Peace Corps will always be the indelible experience as long as we remain a supportive allumni association, just look what has happend in Russia and how the PCV's have been trashed! Also, as I have adopted much of the "miserable Third World" value system too, life is very rough around the edges. By this I mean, I try to live the honest, but poor lifestyle and because it has been forced on me by circumstance I am going to use it as a spiritual merit.
