Became a computer professional, now retired. Lots of community service and volunteering - after all, Peace Corps is forever.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The hardest job I ever loved - a value and perspective setting experience for my whole life. My perspective is world first. We learned from the Koreans to live with recycling, reusing, reducing and minimal footprint before there were terms for that way of life (still saving paper clips, rubber bands, and scrap paper; and NEVER waste food).
