N.B. This site is under construction, so drive carefully. Fines double in work zones. I welcome suggestions (because it's the only way I get e-mail) and I will evaluate them on the following criteria:

* Does it preserve the overall philosophy of the site?
* Do I like it?
* Can it be done in less than five minutes?
* Does it not SUCK?

(If you have any background patterns or other cool graphics you think should be used on this site, send them in JPEG or GIF format as an attachment to WebServant.)

Hi there!

I was privileged to work with a bunch of wicked good PCVs in Benin in the early 80's--quite a long time ago! But I still remember them as if we met only yesterday. The bad news is I've lost track of everyone, except for the training program Director, Jon Otto, and his family (Carroll, Joe, and Sam). They were the Ina group during summer '83, and here are a few names:

Mark Buscaino, Dave, Hilary, Sue, Jude Bursten (was later placed in Bembereke), Gwen (We were together in Djougou), etc...

I would love to hear from anyone of them. Please, please help me find them. I am from Benin, and have been in the US for the past eight (8) years. These are my email addresses:


Thank you so much!

Hello, I am currently serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guinea. Some time in 1997 PC Benin EE Volunteers wrote an Environmental Education Guide. I am in the process of revising this guide for Guinea. Some kind of electronic version of this document would be EXTREMELY useful to me. If anyone knows who I could contact for that, please let me know. Thanks. Sonya Starr:
