Photo 2 - typical class for the culture sessions, which I helped facilitate. Not enough chairs and no table. This is Peace Corps training, baby. Photo 3 - These are two of the kids who live in the compound where the training takes place and where I stayed for two weeks. Loved them. We walked to the nearby resort one evening and along the way they showed me where a house used to stand before the 2010 tsunami. Notice that the ocean is only barely visible in the background. This area was NOT the hardest hit. Photo 4 - Tilt your head and check out the food the family hosting Josh and Alisa sent for them. They won't go hungry. Photo 5 - At the resort, I treated the kids to a Coke (we shared a large bottle) and taught them to say "Cheers!". Photo 6 - Then they discovered the slides! Photo 7 - Training is exhausting. These are three more family members of the main host family, relaxing in the space where training had just ended. Photo 1 - not just the trainees were working hard. This chicken laid an egg every afternoon. Once on a chair, once in the duffle bag of a trainer, and several times on the table.
