  3. Thailand World AIDS Day - Getting to Zero

    Two PC volunteers, about 10 adults and 130 children -- participated in a bike ride for World AIDS Day on December 2, 2011.  The bike ride was the final event from a AIDS/HIV Life Skills Camp held earlier in 2011 in the province of Nakhon Phanom Thailand. Participants showed their support to those living with HIV or AIDS by wearing a red bracelet and also by displaying one of several signs on their body or their bicycle. Signs shared 5-year goals from the UNAIDS program. Signs were available i...

  5. Guatemala Super Moon on Top of a Volcano

    I took this photo on top of Volcan Tajamulco, the tallest volcano in Central America (Guatemala).  We climbed it the night that the moon was at its closest point to the earth and it made for some great photos.  This is a photo of other PCV's enjoying the view.  

  6. Guatemala Rain on a Tin Roof

                The rain used to be quite calming before the beginning of the rainy season.  It would be something that I enjoyed sleeping in, especially with the tin roofs here in Guatemala.  Yet, now the overly loud slapping of rain against the slim pieces of tin that make up the roof is far less romantic than before.  Storms were always part of what I loved about the world.  Back home storms came far more subtly, gently rolling through in the distance and giving fair warning to all who lived ...

  7. Honduras Head, Shoulders. Knees and Toes

    These teachers were part of the Teaching English and Methodology course that Peace Corps Honduras Youth Development project does in collaboration with the Honduran Secretary of Education. PCVs teach public school teachers HOW to teach English so they can better fulfill the government's mandate that they all teach English in the public schools. This video is from their graduation ceremony.

  10. Guatemala La Rosa

    On the eve of our site assignments I sat in the kitchen with Rosa over a dinner of eggs, tomato, and tortilla. I was antsy and excited to know where the next two years of my life would be set. Rosa looked up and said, "Grace, I am much more nervous than you are." Then her eyes began to fill with tears and she began a lengthy and beautiful admission of her gratitude for all the volunteers she has received. She pointed out that she had never had the opportunity nor even the notion o...
