Welcome! The inspiration behind this Blog comes largely from peer pressure. How can I possibly avoid maintaining some kind of online explanation of my PC Panama experience with so many other Volunteers here to cheer me on?
This particular Blog exists to follow the notable events beginning with my days on campus at Michigan Tech University, September 2006. I am serving as both a Peace Corps Volunteer and a student in the Master's International Program for the Mitigation of Natural Geological Hazards. Despite how much I love letter-writing and webpage tinkering, I believe this Blog will be the best way to keep track and share the "best of" my days.
I had a chance to visit this Harpie in Panama City. He is living a comfortable life in captivity and aids conservation programs when visitors, like Peace Corps Volunteers, stop by to learn about Panama´s endangered raptors.
New address as of December 2009:
COS'd and left the country in October 2009!
Note for interested parties: Boxes and large envelopes can´t be sent to San Felix, Panama - so the David address is needed for anything bigger than an envelope. It is also handy to put religious stickers or messages like: Dios está con usted. Often curious mail-handlers like to tear into packages but a general respect is held for materials sent to missionaries. Also, it is often best to send postcards within envelopes - due to wear-and-tear but also because they are enticing to snitch as well.
