Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Chile has been through a hard time from democracy in 1972 through dictatorship until a return to democracy today. I spent 2 weeks in Santiago and the central valley in April 2008 and so many things have changed in 40 years. But the difference between people who have a lot and those who don't still remains, and is still a great challenge. I spent three years in Chile, I didn't keep up with it's trials and I'll never know if anything I did or didn't do changed anything, but it changed me.
