1. Jordan Bright and Cheerful

    Adorable third graders waiting for a photo opp (and any excuse to be distracted from their lessons)

  2. Malawi Shooting the Moon

    Staff members: playing cards amid afternoon prep.  For having grown up on a steady diet of knock-knock (aka Uno) my colleagues showed great enthusiasm for hearts and the dreaded queen of spades.

  3. Guyana Smiles

    Gigantic smiles from two nursery students in a remote Amerindian village in Guyana. I caught them during playtime!

  4. Lesotho Ha Ke Bona Matla

    I asked the seniors of Senkoase High to perform my favorite hymn, Ha Ke Bona Matla (when I see your strength), so I could have a piece of Lesotho to bring home.

  5. Lesotho Joala

    Anthony is taking in the local culture: homemade sorghum beer called joala.

  6. Lesotho Volleyball

    Senkoase High School boys' volleyball team was awarded the opportunity to travel to the capital city of Maseru for a country-wide tournament.  We didn't do very well, but it was worth the trip: for many of the boys, it was their first time off the mountain and into the big city.

  7. Swaziland The Journey is the Best Part

    My husband decided to go hiking in flip-flops: bad for him, great for this photo!

  8. Lesotho Nature's Chair

    Ntate Mathaba, a co-worker, takes a break after a long day.

  9. Lesotho PC Partnership

    During Community Based Training (CBT), a young girl helped my friend Amy find her way home.

  10. Lesotho Anatomy of a Basotho Wedding

    I met my husband, a fellow PCV, at staging in Philidelphia.  Neither one of us had ever attended a wedding in Lesotho, so we had no idea what to expect.  It turned out that it was a lot of walking back and forth!  It spanned two days, and it was an experience that we'll never forget.  The best part was the involvement of our students and fellow teachers.

Countdown to Weekly Contest Deadline!
