“This is Tamba and little Morris. Tamba planted about two acres of rice only with the help of his older son, Mountain. He took me on a tour through the ‘swamp,’ and the next day I helped him harvest the rice. Always wear long sleeves, long pants, and a hat when harvesting rice because the rice casings make your arms incredibly itchy.” - Alex serves in @peacecorpsliberia #howiseepc #peacecorpsliberia

“Farm-to-table tomatoes, anyone? 🍅

I took a trip to the tomato fields in my village and we helped water the plants! I have a newfound appreciation for the women selling their tomatoes at the market. Their ‘jolie tomate’ require a lot of hard work, having to water all the plants by hand each day!” - @peacecorpstogo Volunteer Baylee —

It’s the third night of #Hanukkah⁠, but we couldn’t wait to share this photo from a past year’s fifth (that’s the shamash in the center). 🕎 During her service with @peacecorpsfiji, @milikalewa made a #makeshiftmenorah by placing candles in a bowl of sand! Here, some of her Fijian best friends show it off.
