I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay from 1992 to 1995. I lived outside the town of San Roque Gonzalez de Santa Cruz, and I worked for the Ministry of Agriculture, teaching beekeeping and soil conservation. Here are pictures of my house and some of the people I worked with.

Julianne Hammink

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, 
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

~W. B. Yeats
