|Nthabi, always smiling! Who could resist?|
Since we've returned to the States, a lot of people have asked us about our experience. Many who ask seem to think we'll be able to condense our Peace Corps experience into a few pithy and meaningful aphorisms. To be truthful, this is pretty much how we expected RPCV friends to respond before we became volunteers ourselves. But I can't quite do it. I don't think Perry can, either. Profound parables, noble truths, we gots none.

So, would we take it back? No way. Would we do it again? Probably. We're looking into opportunities with Peace Corps Response. For now, we feel so fortunate to be able to maintain contact with several of our learners on Facebook...and Sarah and Guiomar, too! We're already planning a 2017 return trip, to surprise our learners who will have advanced to grade 12.
