So many times I wondered if you lived or whatever. I tripped over this website and did a little tour of it. I found that Hannah Baldwin married Phillip Tejeda, which kind of knocked me over. I was amused at your brief biography because it feels like my own life, except different. I have memories of emptying a few bottles of beer with you in Dakar. When I first arrived in Diogo, you and I hiked across an endless expanse of sand and stopped at a fisherman's lean-to. Eventually an old man with a cane and a little boy led us to a nearby fishing village, where we were treated with chicken, lobster and warm milk. I thought life couldn't get much better. And in 1972 (I think) I looked you up in New York City and we wandered around to the African Art galleries trying to sell your Congolese masks, with no luck!! I am currently in Vancouver, Washington (across the river from Portland). My email is peacecorpsalum@yahoo.com. Stay in touch!!
