In Your Life
PC got me into a career in
health education, training and international work that
I never would have imagined doing if I hadn’t signed
up for Bolivia 5 training in 1963.
The best was being Invited to join a comparza of llamerada
dancers performing In the 16 de julio fiesta In Guaqui. Thanks
to Bolivia Mines In-country training, I was even able
to complete the compromiso to dance for three years.
Better yet, by the third year I Improved
enough to move up from the last dancer in line (year
one) to number two in year three. What a blast!
Possibly the worst was spending an entire afternoon
In a dentist's chair In La Paz getting seven fillings
from a dentist using an old fashioned drill and without
anesthesia. The curse of using Lima-Limon as a substitute
for potable water.
