Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I returned to Binkolo in 2003 having maintained correspondence of the chief of the area. The village was a hot spot in the war in 1997. The last house I live in while in Makeni had been burned.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was a hard time but wonderful time. I was mentally exhausted when I left Lungi in 1968. The trip back in 2003 was also hard, I went pretty "bush".
