Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Other than it being an incredibly rich, rewarding life experience?! So
glad I toughed it out during hard times...
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would love to hear from RPCVs and others I met during service in Mali.
What fun it would be to reconnect.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world in a little tiny
mountain town of 450 people in the San Juan high country. There are at
least 7 RPCVs living and working here, some of whom indicate they still
feel like they are doing Peace Corps work. We love visitors, and are
seriously recruiting community-minded people with children to grow
this community family by family. If you are ready to roll up your sleeves
and get to work, please get in touch. Serious inquiries only ;-).
