Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I stayed in Costa Rica with the Maleku Indians for four more years, and had two boy. Later I lived in San Jose and taught at a high school, worked in a reseach position and managed an Investment Office living in Costa Rica for a total of fourteen years. I now live and teach English in a rural town in the southeast of Guizhou Province in China. I have been here for nine years.

Peace Corps was a wonderful experience, and I recommend it for any young person with no intercultural experience. What better way to see the world than to dive right in and get paid at the same time!!!
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Kimberly Van Wagner. We were good friends, but I stayed on and we lost contact.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
The experiences you have had are unique, and should be helpful in any career that you may persue.
