Confessions of a Bulgarian PCV
As with A-100 classes, each Peace Corps cohort in a given country gets a number. I was part of the B-11 group, and it turns out my fellow B-11s have been pretty busy lately.
It seems one of my fellow Bulgaria PCVs has written a whole book based on his experiences there. I tell you, it was only a matter of time. I just found out about the website today, and since I know absolutely all of you are fascinated by Bulgaria and the Peace Corps in general, I thought I would share it with you.
If you liked that, there’s more: PC-Bulgaria’s very own Chantel Sloan has also had a short (but mostly true) story published in a book called “So Far and Yet so Near: Stories of Americans Abroad.” Definitely some fun reading.
So for all of you who always wanted to know what it was like to be a Peace Corps volunteer or to live in Bulgaria, there are now some ways for you to find out. And there are sure to be more – it’s just a matter of time.
