I'm a returned PCV - India 16. My wife and I are at a point where we can retire. One of the things we're thinking about is the Peace Corps again, but we're also looking for other ideas and that's why this note.

We both would like to do something that's differs from what we have been doing, with the thought that doing something new. learning something, would be more rejuvinating than to continue to do what we've been doing for many years now. I'm a clinical psychologist, my wife is an elementary school teacher. So any thoughts or reactions would be appreciated.

I just finished writing a book review of
"Confessions of a Renegade (Peace Corps
Years) by Eddie James Girdner . Ed was a member
of India/53 with me in Punjab state 1968-70.
He has written an excellent memoir of
his two years as an agriculture extension
agent with village farmers in Banga Block
In Jullandhar Districts. It is an "earthy
account" , literally and romantically,of a
Missouri farm boy being birthed
into a world wise political scientist.
It is an excellent piece of work from an
accomplished author of previously
published books."Confessions of a Renegade"
can be found on -available
From other bookseller for under $20.
Read my review first.
