A Peace Corps Story Comes Full Circle
An RPCV who went to Ethiopia with the first group in 1962 and is now living in a retirement community in DC.
“I’m preparing to go to bed. In comes Rahel, an Ethiopian nurse, to take my temperature and other vital measures. While she’s here, she’s joined by Asnaku, Ethiopian, who has come to get out my PJS and reorder my clothes. Then she is joined by Melat, the youngest of the Ethiopian caregivers, who not only helps Asnaku but also takes out my laundry for pick up overnight. Melat is a graduate of BarDahr University. Great service.”
A PCV story that has come full circle.

I think DC has more Ethiopians than Ethiopia! They love it when I call them Habesha.
