1. Bolivia Finally

    I was a young volunteer having just turned 20 a month into training. Training had been a whirlwind and more exciting than anything I had ever done.  The selection process had taken a toll on our group and we landed in Bolivia with just 22. After days in both the capitol city and provential capitol, assignments were made and we headed for our sites. We left Cochabamba with three couples in a jeep stationwagon and headed out into a sub-valley from the very beautiful provential capitol.  We left...

    A boy on his way home after full day of Phagwah--the Hindu festival of colors.  This day started off with a religious service at the local Mandir where everyone wears white and receives their first of powder thrown at them.

  9. Guyana Road Washed Out

    There is only one main road to get to my site.  The government has tried to help by building roads along much of this main road, but due to heavy rains was washed out. This particular break in the road ended up stranding me for three days while we waited for the heavy machinery to come and repair the culvert and bridge.
