1. Moldova Happy Memorial Easter!

    In Moldova we celebrate not only Eastern Orthodox Easter but one week later we also go to the cemetery for Memorial Easter.  We bring with us sweets, breads, chocolates, colored eggs and wine to be blessed and eaten in honor of the souls of the deceased.

  3. Tonga Sela's Sea Star

    My host sister Sela is showing me a sea star, while her younger sister, Kalo, is collecting more on the beach below.  This is my absolute favorite picture from my service in the Kingdom of Tonga. 

  4. Macedonia Another day in the fields

    I ran into friends from a local village and they are always willing to smile for the camera.  This mother was coming back from the fields and I begged the young daughter to hop up on the donkey for a photo.  I don't know who did the better convincing - a whining, begging PCV or a mother with a quick, warning look.

  5. Macedonia US family meets PC family

     My family was visiting from the States and we couldn't let their visit go by without a good old fashion Macedonian picnic, complete with pictures!  Macedonians make everyone feel like family and that is what happened on this special day!

  6. Macedonia Hiking with family

    Sonia and Tosho; friends that became instant family.  Hiking was a great way to learn about each other and our different cultures.
