Question: What will your site look like in Peace Corps?

Answer: Just like this without the beach and water and perhaps without the palm trees and blue sky.

If you go to Nepal, you won't be placed in the high Himalayas and you won't spend too much time trekking.

If you go to Bolivia you won't be in the Amazon but you could be eating guinea pig and shivering away in the Altiplano.

If you go to Fiji you could quickly discover just how small a small island really is, often smaller than you would like.

Peace Corps does not send volunteers to Sweden or Switzerland but if you go to Swaziland your mail could mistakenly end up in Switzerland.

Many Peace Corps sites do come with bad water and exotic diseases. (Follow the medical regulations.)


Peace Corps can be fun, but don't plan on an exotic holiday.
