- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
They say in the Peace Corps that volunteers who go to South America come back as rebels, volunteers who go to Asia come back as mystics, and volunteers who go to Africa come back laughing. My three years in Niger, West Africa were some of the richest years of my life thus far, and the people I lived with taught me so much more than I brought to them. They are some of the poorest people of the world, and were also some of the happiest I have ever met. I still miss my family there and look forward to visiting again some day.
