Smithsonian Folk Life Festival Celebrates Peace Corps

For those of you who will be in the DC area in early July, check out the Smithsonian's Folk Life Festival.  One of the themes will be the Peace Corps' 50th Anniversary.  The other two themes will be Colombia and Rhythm & Blues.

The Peace Corps section will apparently feature an exhibit by a Guatemala RPCV who built a school house in her village out of plastic drink bottles she found littered around the community.  Thus ends my long insistence that the Balkanabat Bi-Monthly Frisbee Club was the GREATEST PEACE CORPS PROJECT EVER.
