Any current or former Peace Corps volunteers here?

My son has been accepted and he is going to Tanzania this July. I am so proud of him for deciding to do this. But I am also a mom and I worry!
I would love to hear of any fellow Duers experiences.

Anyone with kids in the military can chime in, too! Need to learn how to worry less and just be excited for the experience my son will be having.

He graduates in May with a BA in biology and education. We are taking a road trip (along part of Route 66 as he has had a job at the Route 66 state park). We are having a going away party so friends and family can come and visit before he leaves.

I feel pretty confidant about his safety. I was worried at first but then I look at things in this country and figure it is not always that safe here either! I worry more about things like malaria, but I figure he is a science guy and pretty clean so hopefully he can avoid things like that?

Thanks for sharing any stories and thoughts!
