Made it only half way back home as for the last 30 years I've been working with the USDA, Agricultural Research Service in Hawaii
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Never been the same after being in PC. Thought I would do two years and then "go back to my life" - how innocent and idea. Something changed and I started to see the world in a whole different way. I life in a rain forest on the Big Island and don't seem to have the same wants of old school friends.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would love to hear from others from the Solomons or Samoa - there are a lot here in Hawaii, but I'm wondering what some of you who went back to the mainland have been doing with your lives.
