Some more s'mores?


An American tradition during cool summer nights is getting cozy by the campfire for some songs and s'mores!  Who doesn't enjoy melted chocolate and toasted marshmallows squeezed between two sweet graham crackers?  In Vanuatu cooking over a campfire is far from special.  We cook over it 3 times a day!  I wanted to teach them about our tradition and eat some chocolate!  My mom from home sent along the fixins for s'mores and my host family enjoyed an American treat for the first time.  It was a delicious and special moment in my Peace Corps experience of sharing American customs with the Ni-Vanuatu people.
