My Captain in Officer Candidate School told me about a well that they put into a village in Afghanistan that kept mysteriously breaking, when they investigated in thoroughly they found that the women of the village were breaking the well in order to preserve their 2 mile commute to the next village’s well because walking allowed them to get out of their homes and take a break from what many in our Country would consider a domesticated existence. Counterinsurgency is a real interest of mine, especially how to help communities in the international arena rather than simply boil the concept of war down to a body count. Sounds like you had a bit of a culture shock just driving down the road to your assignment, hahaha. Cool though. My wife’s family is from the Dominican Republic, it gets like that down there too.

However, the people be able to take it there. God seem to examine the people and how their reactions about that. And you are strongest be up against all disasters. Congratulations…..! :-)

The infrastructure there isn’t what we have in the U.S., not even close. Still you must have had an interesting experience working there, thanks for your service with the Peace Corps.
