BONUS: One of my Peace Corps colleagues who was assigned to St. Lucia does a weekly report on the television news there about the Peace Corps, entitled "Corps Values." In this four minute story from their newscast, she covers the recent Mid-Service Training that all of us attended recently at the Benedictine Abbey on St. Lucia. It was great to see all my "classmates" again, after we were split up and sent to different islands upon completion of our Pre-Service Training in 2015. Her report gives a good sense of what we do in the Peace Corps. [I can be seen a few times wearing a bright green shirt near the front of the room.]

Looking Great at 38, Dominica!
Today is Independence Day in Dominica as they celebrate their 38th birthday as an independent country. I wrote a blog post last year about some of their Independence Day traditions (http://kuribbean.blogspot.com/2015/11/celebrating-independence.html), so I will try to focus this year's blog story on what was new and different. One thing that was new and different was our beautiful new banner for our school, which incorporates design elements from the Dominican flag (I had it made while I was home).
