This photo was taken in 1990. Sitting at my dining table, I wrote in my journal daily during my Peace Corps service in Antigua, West Indies. On the wall above me is a map of the Eastern Caribbean where I called home at this time in my life. On the table is my cassette tape player and radio, which was my musical refuge and link to the outside world. When I first came to the island in April of 1989, I got confused and plugged my 110v radio into a 220 outlet, only to promptly burn it out, rendering it nonfunctional! Fortunately a local guy was able to fix it for me!
