Life in Africa

Posted by David Keelan on Thursday, June 29, 2006

My in-laws have retired a few years ago.

Upon retirement they joined the Peace Corp and were assigned to Romania where they worked in a small city called Zalu.  By all accounts it was a wonderful experience.  Although they were in search of volunteer opportunities that didn’t require such a long term commitment they opted for the Peace Corp. since they couldn’t find anything else.

From the contacts they made in the Peace Corp. they have found a 3 month assignment in Tanzania, Africa.  They are currently working there to assist the government in their AIDS/HIV efforts.

I will post some of their experiences here.  Why?  So we can remember how good we have it here, know of the generous hearts American’s have, and because it is darn interesting.
