  2. China Summer Project - Rongjiang

    A little video of our experience during summer project, July 2010.

  3. Togo Good friends

    One of my dissappointments in Togo was that I didn't get to live in a mud hut.  There was a cement factory in Tabligbo that had been built by the Swiss (I think). They had also built several housing developments for the workers.  The housing was not filled, so we were lodged there.  I had a very nice three bedroom villa with running water and a kitchen, but not much furniture.  These are volunteers plus our friend Sim (Ghanaian). 

  4. Togo Don and his wives

    Conan (in the back), Don, Ann, Linda and I went through training together. We were all teachers in different villages.  Linda and I were in the same village.  Don had a great house near the coast and was a wonderful host, so we visited him a lot.  As a result, we were considered to be his wives. 

  5. Niger Happy Girls

    Girls from different villages in the Zinder region bond during our week-long Girls' Empowerment Camp.

  6. Jordan Patriotism

    Walking around with another volunteer, extra early on a Friday morning before the noon prayer so that there weren't enough people around to notice us whipping out our cameras, we ran into this young man in the souq, or market. He asked to have his picture taken under the Jordanian flag in exchange for some raspberry gum. Of course, we obliged. 

  7. Belize Father and Son

    This Rasta family lived next to a freind of mine on Caye Caulker. I asked the father if he'd let me take a piture of his son - he agreed but didn't want to look into the lense. The baby was so cute, he'd just come out of the bath. Years later someone saw this on my flickr account - turned out to be the child's aunt - she was delighted.

  8. Azerbaijan Azerbaijani Bride

    During my traditional Azerbaijani wedding my husband and I broke the rules and smiled American style! Traditionally, no one smiles in wedding photos in this post soviet country, but we couldn't help but just combine our styles!

  9. Samoa Miko and Lio

    Lio gives his baby brother, Miko a piggy back ride.

  10. Azerbaijan A PCV Christmas

    One of the volunteers had a birthday a few days before Christmas, and a bunch of his HCN friends threw him a party at a local restaurant, complete with a Christmas tree! We gathered in front of the tree with the local Şaxta Baba (Azerbaijan's version of Santa Claus) for a PCV family photo. (Please Note that Santa Claus is smoking hookah, haha.)

Countdown to Weekly Contest Deadline!
