This is Jim Senn, in your group, EC 4 (not 3), Grenada. You and I and Nita and Linda P. traveled through S. America summer of 1969. Very strange to find this posting b/c I've been wondering what's happened to you and others. Bill Barrett moved to France last I heard. He and his wife (?) moved, I think, after the Clintons left office. She was involved in the Clinton White House somehow. I would run into him from time to time in D.C. Anita Botti and her family used to live in DC, but have lost touch with her. She married Paul Magid. Last I saw her was at Carlyn Payton's house in DC, but she has since died. I've lived in Arlington since '73; after Grenada moved to Portugal then here. Married, two grown girls, looking at retirement next year. Spanish teacher. We're heading to Grenada over spring break. Do you remember freezing in Peru and then the warmth of Brazil, Manaus, etc? I still show the slides to my kids. I'm at Jimbofiveo@comcast.net Take care. Jim

Just playing around with Google searches led me to your web page. Did you ever contact Bill Barrett?
I was a VSO based in Sandy Point St. Kitts from September 1968 until July 1970, living next door to Bill Barrett. He was best man at my wedding in 1969 in Basseterre. I have tried to contact him through the Peace Corps but failed.
I am sure we both used to visit your house along with Yvette, my late wife, on a Saturday morning when we were in town, but after all these years the memory is fading slightly. I returned to St. Kitts, briefly on a cruise in January 2004, and while visiting Brimstone Hill was recognised by some former pupils who now work there. The whole island has changed, perhaps not for the better.
