One reason we started writing May We Suggest was to work towards the Peace Corps’ third goal: to help promote a better understanding of other peoples (in our case, Nicaraguans) on the part of Americans. We want to share our experiences and a bit of the Nicaraguan world with as many as possible state side and beyond. Even with our service behind us and this blog now housing our personal musings, we hope it can still serve part of that original purpose.
To help share a variety of information about both Nicaraguan culture and our personal reflections during and after service, we host a variety of series and features on our blog:
Dicho Doce – Nicaraguan sayings on the 12th of the month. Learn some great phrases shared all over Nicaragua.
Foto Fridays – A visual catalogue of our Peace Corps service with a foto shared every Friday during our time in Nicaragua. We might continue this one once we settle again in the states.
Conterpart Diaries – From our Counterparts themselves on who they are and what it was like to work with a Peace Corps Volunteer.
Blogging Abroad Prompts – a series of prompts by Blogging Abroad to promote cultural exchange through blogging.
PCV Spotlight: Stories from the Field – Guest posts from other Peace Corps Volunteers
Journeying Towards Wholehearted Living – a year of focusing on one of Brené Brown’s Guideposts to Wholehearted Living.
