I started my experiences with Uzbekistan in 1997. That was the year I joined the U.S. Peace Corps as an English language teacher. I admit that I didn’t know much about the place before I went there, but that was exactly what I was looking for before I joined. I wanted to work somewhere that was off the beaten path and would provide me with new experiences and in a place that few westerners had been before. Certainly, this much was achieved! I lived in the Ferghana Valley in a small town called Kuvasoy, which is located on the border with Kyrgyzstan. And it was here that I gained a strong appreciation and love for the people who live in this part of the world.
