1. St. Lucia Boys in St. Lucia

    We met these boys while hiking in remote Belle Vue, St. Lucia.  They were helping their father who was a coconut farmer. While much of the island has access to North American amenities such as cable tv, Costco-style super markets, and wifi, these boys were the essence of natural innocence.

  2. Fiji na veivuravura

    After completing our World Map project at Saivou District School, I wanted the kids to see themselves how much they'd learned. They'd taken a pop-quiz before the project began and few could name more than 5 countries around the world, or tell you which continent was where. After the project, I clipped up all my precious newsweeks and on each photo wrote the name of a different country where the picture was taken. The kids lined up in relay teams to see who could get rid of their stack of phot...

  3. Senegal Mangrove Replanting - With help from PC Washington!

    PCVs came from around the region to help with a Mangrove Replanting Day in Sokone, Senegal on August 18th, 2009.  We were fortunate to have the Acting Director of Congressional Relations from Peace Corps Washington, Suzie Carroll, join us!  Pictured: young Senegalese boy, PCV Rithvik Balakrishnan, and Suzie Carrol

  4. Senegal Constant company

    With over 45% of the Senegalese population under the age of 18, there are always children to play with or babies to hold.  They love the attention.  In this photo I'm playing with a little Senegalese girl in the village of a fellow PCV on the morning of a religious pilgrimage that I had come down to see.

  6. Honduras pila window

    Here the family's pila becomes a window to the clothes on the line, the vegetable garden, the countryside.      

  7. Sierra Leone Going To Kayima

    This was the third day in country going to my village. We spent the night in the bus. The next morning the driver walked to the nearest village and brought back men to push us out... after a heated arument on how much they wanted to be paid.

  8. Sierra Leone Woman Talk

    Ma Yeleba was one of five wives of a chief in the Hastings/Koso Town village. She brought me African chop and I baked her pies. She had a sweet tooth and I learned about African life in the village from her. When I returned in 2008, she was no longer alive but I met her sister who had a stong resemblance.

  9. Morocco American Pizza Night!!!

    It really only took one experience to hook my host family on American Pizza.  In short order it became a weekly tradition.  Here my host brother Nunu displays the goods.

  10. Morocco Something Interesting That Way Is

    I don't recall what these boys were looking at, but it must have been pretty great to capture all of their attentions at once.

Countdown to Weekly Contest Deadline!
