4.0 out of 5 stars A Greak First Look at Benin and Life as a Peace Corps Volunteer, April 12, 2012
This review is from: To Benin and Back: Short Stories, Essays, and Reflections About Life in Benin as a Peace Corps Volunteer and the Subsequent Readjustment Process. (Paperback)
Chris includes so much information about his experiences as a Peace Corps volunteer and his visits in the years following. He writes honestly and descriptively. I am currently a volunteer in Benin, and I was able to relate to a lot of what he says. Although some things have changed and my experiences have differed from his, I learned more about the culture and history of Benin than I knew before. If you want to learn about modern West African life, you will get it from the point of view of an American who lived in Benin for two years. You won't be able to find this point of view in other books. If you are thinking about making the plunge to come and visit, he has a lot of practical information that will be helpful in planning your trip.
