20 September

Yesterday was Maryann’s birthday. She is my Associate Peace Corps Director in charge of Dominican volunteers. Her boss is Country Director of the East Caribbean Dick Pyle whose office is on St. Lucia. 

Last year Brad and I were going to hold a party for her but it fell through because of the effects of the typhoid shots for EC56ers. We finally celebrated her birthday at “our” New Year’s Eve party. 

She is currently out of the country on vacation in the US. I hope she is relaxing from her usual workaholic pace. Since she left one of the new EC57 volunteers left.

I put a birthday card in her mail box before she left, and it seems that she got it before she left since it was gone the next morning. Yolanda was thinking up an idea for a party when she returns. I hope Yolanda will still be here for that.

She quit her job because of problems with her colleague. She hopes to get reassigned to another assignment here or to one in Grenada. I hope she finishes her third PC service.
