Dear Paul and Ellen,
Saw your posting in RPCV News. Glad to hear you're back safely and that all is well. Myself, after serving as UNV Philippines, returned to US, finished Master's degree and then went to Beijing as UNV in 1984. Got hired by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1986, got married and stayed until Tian An Men incident in 1989. Currently back in Seattle.
Do you ever hear from Taraba?
