PC 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. 

Best/Worst PC Experience

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.
