Dibbert delivers with "Fiesta of Sunset",
This review is from: Fiesta of Sunset: The Peace Corps, Guatemala and a Search for Truth (Paperback)
I never did the Peace Corps, even though I thought I wanted to a few times. I would think about how old I would be at the end of my tenure and the idea would quickly vanish. For three days last week I was in Nebaj, Guatemala working as a Peace Corps volunteer, following Mr. Dibbert through breathtaking views of the high mountains of the Ixil Triangle, heart-wrenching medical exams, the Peace Corps bureaucracy, and stacks of tortillas. "Fiesta of Sunset" took me there and I'm grateful for what I saw.
Dibbert delivers a taste of the Peace Corps experience with a hearty helping of Guatemalan culture and history. This book is a beautiful, at times hilarious read that I highly recommend.
