Unforgettable! A lot of good friends well-remembered! Does anyone remember our group's director in Brattleboro? George...? He passed out a paper called "Learning How to Learn" - still fascinated by that. And ah, Camp Arden!
The Peace Corps set the direction for the rest of my life, a good direction often in spite of myself. Not a successful PCV - too immature for that. But the Peace Corps was good for me, and I am grateful to the trainers in Vermont, like Beth, and to Peace Corps state directors Joe da Rosa (Alagoas) and Herb Soll (Rio). Good, humane people. Also, I admire those volunteers who were able to accomplish good things. Greetings, old friends, and a moment of silence for Sargent Shriver, who has just been laid to rest....
I've been teaching in Montebello, a suburb of L.A. for over 30 years. Met and married another rpcv 35 years ago. David was in Colombia 7. We met in L.A. We have 2 grown children, both musicians. We go out to dinner about once a month with other rpcv's. We hit a different ethnic restaurant every month. It's fun. Still haven't found a 'good' Brasilian one yet... Have yet to run into anyone who served in Brasil. I know you're out there! Write to me!
I recently spent a little over 2 years as an Admin Officer for the Peace Corps in Cape Verde -in large part because I speak Portuguese and because I was a volunteer, plus my 25 years as a General Contractor and construction business owner. Now I'm in the Foreign Service on my first tour in Athens, Greece. My wife, Marli, is from Marica, RJ. And my 3 kids have all spent a lot of time in Brazil - 2 for a year each at PUC-Rio. It doesn't get out of your blood....
Have had wonderful reunions with fellow PCV friends from Brazil. Has brought back great memories and fun times with old friends. I am at Claire and Lud Pisapia's house this minute adding my name to this web page.
