"Every planet has its own weird customs. About a year before we met, I spent six weeks on a moon where the principal form of recreation was juggling geese. My hand to God. Baby geese - goslings! They were juggled."

Back home after more than two years

If anyone's still out there, following this blog - I'm sorry I neglected it.  Last Saturday, I flew from Quito to Houston to Chicago for the last time as a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer.  I stuck it out and lasted the two years in country.  Some miserable days, some nice days.  I didn't share the half of it. 

My plan within the next few days is to get my web albums completely updated with photos.  On Monday I have an interview with the Northwest Herald (McHenry County, Illinois) to talk about Peace Corps service.  And soon, I promise I'll write here what it's like for me to return to the United States after life abroad in South America. 

So, thanks for following me this far.  I think the next chapter in my life will be pretty fun as well.


  1. Welcome home! I'm sure your family is really happy to see you again.

  2. Welcome back to the US. Look forward to hearing an update and hope that the last bit of the journey went well for you!

  3. You are an inspiration to all of us slackers :) I hope you have a great Summer in Alaska!
