From land-locked Afghanistan to the smallest of islands in the far reaches of the Pacific Ocean, stories by peace Corps Volunteers from this region come from (mostly) Hindu India-1,269,210 square miles worth of democracy patched together from princely states-Confucian Korea, Muslim Indonesia and Buddhist Thailand. Imagine delivering a baby-with the help of the handy Peace Corps first aid kit-on a rust bucket of a passenger ship in the Pacific or practicing agriculture with armed Pathan farmers in the Pashtun region of Pakistan. How about trekking into the far reaches of Afghanistan to inoculate women and children for small pox, or returning 25 years later to your school in India to find that, yes, your students do remember you? These stories say. "I Was There."
