Country of Service: Nicaragua

Cities you served in: Cinco Pinos and San Pedro del Norte
Arrival Year: 1968

Started out in the basic grains program working for National Bank in Nicaragua I, but ended up spending a lot of time in setting up a transport coop and several community development projects.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I left early due to a family medical emergency (my brother's brain tumor operation; he died after 13 mos. in coma). Recently retired from South Carolina state government, having served as state archivist. Now spending a good deal of time with grandson, and fly fishing and kayaking as time permits. Retirement is a lot busier than I expected!
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I have many good memories, and thankful that I kept a journal (but wish I had made more entries!).
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone from the the first group; others are certainly welcome.
