Apiculture extensionist at La ENA - taught african bee management classes, assisted in bee disease research and worked with local groups to establish beekeeping projects/cooperatives. Didn't have a lot of success but had a wonderful time working at the ag school.
I was also head chef and goat killer for the Olancho Goat Roast from '89-90 ;?D.
And I had the great fortune to work as a trainer for the last group of PCV's in the beekeeping sector ('90-91).
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Married a wonderful Honduran woman and we have a great daughter who's 15yrs old now - wow, where does the time go, lol. Am currently living in Emmett Idaho and have my own home remodeling business. I'm working on starting an adobe home construction project with the goal of introducing natural, energy efficient and environmentally friendly homes to Idaho.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Pretty much the pivotal point in my life and without a doubt a most rewarding and interesting experience. Met so many wonderful people and I learned a lot about myself and the journey I'm on.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone who remembers....
