O is for ORIGAMI

In Peace Corps, they tell you to expect the unexpected.

Being evacuated from one country and sent to another was certainly unexpected, but if I tell that story back home, I feel like it sort of makes sense. Same with other stories involving bus accidents, women in labor, farm animals walking into my house, and weird food.  The most unexpected thing I’ve done in Peace Corps so far is learn how to make origami.

Thanks to my dear friend Nora, who forced her origami paper on me in Morocco after our Niger evacuation, I have made origami a hobby. If you’ve received letters from me in the mail, chances are they came in the shapes of dog faces and sailboats.
