Imagine having a well-paid career as a Finance Manager at a large multinational industrial company for 17 years. And then you leave the company to join the Peace Corps to pursue a dream. Everyone is shocked and amazed at your decision. But does your experience in the Peace Corps actually live up to your dreams? That is what I did at the age of 43 in 2007. Shortly after arriving in Albania to begin my two years of service as a Peace Corps Community Development Volunteer, I decided to send monthly email letters to my family and friends. Those monthly email letters helped me remain connected to my family and friends after moving to another country. The feedback from my monthly emails letters was very positive. Many individuals suggested that I even write a book about my Peace Corps experience. So here is the book. This collection covers my unique experiences ranging from adapting to a new country, culture and language to building relationships in a small city where no Peace Corps Volunteers had been placed before me to completing some amazing projects over more than a two-year time period. Although there were many obstacles along the way, my experience in the Peace Corps truly was a dream come true for me.
