This site was written with the third goal of the U.S. Peace Corps in mind: "Teaching Americans about other cultures through the experiences of returned Peace Corps Volunteers.." As the Web knows no national boundaries, we also hope that this HomePage will help all cultures around the world to appreciate these two very special places.
