The common thing that all Peace Corps volunteers do when they arrive home is that they tell stories about their overseas experiences. While the historical accuracy of these stories cannot be vouched for, it is important to note that several of these stories may have already grown and their meanings may have been changed over the years. This chapter includes several stories regarding the arrival of the volunteers in their assigned countries, and to the various events that took place as they arrived on site. These stories often reflect country wisdom or what the volunteers have learned throughout their stay in the foreign country. Also, these stories contain much information regarding the important events, animals, and people that they encountered during their volunteer work, as well as how they felt while having these experiences.
