Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Took my English degree and well-digging experience and became a (1) commercial artist, (2) mobile home salesman, (3) scenic artist for TV production, (4) stained-glass artisan, (5) construction worker, (6) artist's model, and finally (7) computer systems engineer. It was a strange trip.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
So glad I did it. There is nothing better than living in a foreign culture, getting to know the people, and working under "strange" conditions to ensure that nothing will ever seem too intimidating to try, ever again.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Jack Packard, Marilyn Moorhead, Juanita Morin, Jim Bell, Bill Thompson, hostel guardian Ramat, his wife Halima, their daughter Fatima. Mme Volcy of the PC office!
Any message for returned volunteers?:
You will get SO tired of telling your story that you'll eventually be able to sum up the whole experience in about two sentences. Strange but true.
