Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
A quarter century later, I guess you could say I'm still trying to come to terms with the joy and the tragedy of life in Rabinal, B.V. I suppose it is a cliche to say that Peace Corps was a life-altering experience, but in so many ways it truly was.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone from my P.C. contingent which trained in Costa Rica, fall of 1978. Anybody who served in Baja Verapaz, 1978-81.
