What color shirt should you wear on Fridays in Thailand? Which three Americans are the only ones Senegalese boys ever heard of all with the same first name? What's so special about the families living in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda? What country has "Watch out for warthogs!" traffic signs? What's the most precious thing received by a Ghanaian sex worker learning to protect herself from HIV? Carole Howard was practically allergic to risk-taking but she took a deep breath and jumped off the cliiff with her husband after they retired. With little idea of what to expect they went on a two-month volunteer assignment as management consultants for a non-profit in Senegal. It was enriching thrilling life-affirming. So they did it again the following year in Uganda. And three more times after that. It was like taking simultaneous crash courses in the world in themselves and in each other. Meaningful work and a lot of fun......is there a better combination? She now knows the answers to the questions she posed above...... and a whole lot more. About the Author Carole Howard is the author of two novels - About Face and Deadly Adagio - as well as the co-author of The Great PARIS WalkPack. She loves to travel and has been to 50-odd countries so far -- and that doesn't even include places where she only changed planes! She also loves to return home to the welcoming green hills of New York's Hudson Valley.
