If I remember correctly, I joined the Peace Corps "for the money." Also, to get away from snowy Salt Lake City. We trained at Camp Radley near Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Like most in our group, I was "deselected." Two years later I ran across a fellow deselectee, Annelie Wiskera, in Texas. We recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. So, although I never got as far as Bogota, CEUCA was a life-changing experience. Following close behind my winter of discontent, 1967 was definitely "a summer of love."
