I would say that something started to happen between Adam and I while riding across Guinea in a bush taxi. The car ride back to Conakry was 15 hours and we held hands during the entire trip while we talked about home. We got married 9 months after we returned from service in my parent's backyard in California. It was a small wedding with close family, friends, and RPCVs. I remember that during that bush taxi ride, I felt like I was talking to my best friend. It is amazing being married to not only my best friend, but someone who understands the place that Guinea has in my heart.
