1. Bulgaria Ain't No River Wide Enough

    2010 TEFL Academy in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria. The newest PCVs were teaching a class of 3rd Graders "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" for a performance later that week.

  2. Philippines Snowing in the Philippines

    My students always ask me what snow is like, as they have never experienced a temperature less than 70 degrees farenheit. For Christmas, I taught my students how to make snowflakes out of white paper. They had a great time cutting out their own unique designs. Then we all threw them up into the air, making it snow in the Philippines for the first time!

  3. Morocco Rabat Ville Train Station

    The view looking out from the Rabat Ville train station in Rabat's capital city.

  4. Ghana Baby Doll

    Women in Ghana carry their babies on their back. My favorite little girl, Yaa, would carry around her "baby"- a stalk of sugar cane- on her back as lovingly as any American child would carry a toy baby doll.

  5. Jordan Camp GLOW

    Pioneer year for Camp GLOW Jordan.  Taking a break after broom hockey with new friends.

  6. Jordan Broadening Perspectives

    Students from a special education center and students from the local middle school had an opportunity to interact and play games.

  7. Jordan Bright and Cheerful

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

  8. Fiji Cuvu Day

    At the annual village fundraiser, one of the family groups gathers in the center of the village green to sing a song as three children stand by and watch, all dressed in the brightly colored bula fabric often worn in Fiji.

  9. Fiji Reef Survey

    Some of the local villagers giving an underwater thumbs-up while doing a bit of field practice during a workshop on reef surveys where they've been learning how to conduct transect lines to assess the health of nearby coral reefs.

  10. Guyana Smiles

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