  1. Georgia a merry christmas, or something like it

    This was my second Christmas in a foreign land, a land where Christmas is on an entirely different day, so the locals make nothing of it.  But to be honest, I never get into a holiday spirit anyway.  Holidays are something that I like to believe don’t really affect me, though they might affect my relations with other people and the going-ons around me.  They make for themes to parties, but they don’t give me any sense of meaning or reality, no stability of philosophy or character.  Character...

  2. Georgia A Typical Day in the Life of a Peace Corps Volunteer in Georgia

    American Peace Corps Volunteer in Georgia   Volunteering in a developing country for two years is probably exactly what you expect it to be -- a sparse water supply, gravel roads and an inordinate amount of farm animals.  Living in Georgia might bring out the inner hitchhiker or even the inner vegetarian in you. I wake up at six in the morning with the cocks.  At every hour of the day the cocks can be heard from any corner of my house, but they grow especially noisy at six in the morning, ju...

  3. Georgia Fishing

    Waiting for something to catch.  Hopefully it's a fish.

  4. Georgia bug-schizo

    “My house is a balanced ecosystem,” I explained to my two newest couchsurfers, in-between bouts against a large tarantula like spider, using a blue nalgene water bottle as my weapon of choice.  They were two girls, traveling from Turkey through the Caucasus and back to Turkey.  While on the road, they had explained the hospitality of Caucasian men (in their instance, primarily Armenian men) and how they were near constantly being followed, honked at and groped.  They fled from there quickly b...

  5. Georgia Summer fun

    Enjoying summer with my new host family and friends along with fellow volunteers.

  6. Georgia Cold Fingers

    This film is a slightly scary and comedic take on the cold winter months in my mountain-town in Georgia.  Sometimes laughter is the best remedy when your snowed in your house with no school.  My host family and I did get a kick out of the video we made during the heavy snowfall and that's why to me it was a success. 

  7. Georgia Spring Collage

    Winter has finally passed in Georgia and people are out and about enjoying the beauty of Spring and the much awaited warm weather.

  9. Georgia Dragging With Time

    Regardless of how many projects or activies you are involved with, time always seems to be abundant.  This is a short film about time dragging on and fighting the inevitable boredom. 

  10. Georgia World AIDS Day Initiative Group

    In Akhaltsikhe, Georgia, Peace Corps volunteers McKinze Cook, Kelley Gallagher, Kimberly Tramel and Sean Fredericks, along with EVS and Teach-and-Learn-With-Georgia volunteers, worked together to create a peer education initiative group comprised of local teenagers. These young people received a series of trainings about HIV and AIDS, then used that information to design a comprehensive campaign to increase awareness in their community. On World AIDS Day, December 1, the initiative group took...
