Our Peace Corps Journal

School kids in Alaverdi from Sayat Nova School #8

Welcome to our Armenian Journals. This is our collection of group emails that we sent to family and friends while serving in the Peace Corps. All text generally remains the same because it captures our thoughts, interpretations, and feelings of the experience. We have added photos (in progress) to help provide a visual as to what or where we are discussing.

This collection helped us view our progress in acclimating to a new culture, learning a new language, and becoming comfortable with being out of our comfort zone. We hope you enjoy reading them. You will notice that as time progresses, we get a little more creative with the emails, especially in Volume II (aka Year 2).

You can select a journal to read from the menu on the right.
