1. Micronesia Boat to Nan Madol

    I remember this moment so well. It was so beautiful the boat ride to this island with ancient ruins.  I couldn't believe I was in the middle of the Pacific Ocean--what a paradise.

  2. Turkmenistan Families

    My family visiting my permanent site host family.

  3. Micronesia Pohnpei Training Group

    June 1995 Training   What a blast we had.  I'll never forget the month we spent here.

  4. Bulgaria 1st Day

    The first day of school is reason for celebration here in Bulgaria.

  5. Bulgaria Chess

    Loved seeing the old men playing chess in the park. It was like a seen from a movie, very surreal. 

  6. Bulgaria Snowmen can dance?

    Who knew snowmen could dance? Or shall I say snowgirls?

  7. Bulgaria Getting Dressed

    These 12th grade boys are getting dressed for their dance performance. It was definitely a two person job. 

  8. Bulgaria Best Friends

    They're always smiling.

  9. Bulgaria Confusion

    This student makes every class completely worth it because I always know what he's thinking (especially if he's understanding) based on his expression. 

  10. Turkmenistan Teke Turkmen Bash Salmak

    This is a tradition that Teke women do after they have a wedding. The married women and single girls from the groom's family will wrestle for the new bride's womanhood. As you can see it gets pretty intense! Also, don't mess with Dayzas... they are strong women!
