We're Nate and Ilana. This is our account of living in a remote part of Guyana, South America as Peace Corps Volunteers from 2011-2013.

A little diddy
A few nights ago we had a family appreciate night where we celebrated our host families for taking us into their home even though we were complete strangers. Part of the night was a talent show where we volunteers got up to share our talents, which included things like juggling while singing a Guyanese song, self defense demonstration, the American national anthem, and of course a choreographed medley featuring Justin Bieber's "Baby." I wrote a song (which was originally intended for our swearing in ceremony but needed to be cut for time reasons) about training. Then a friend and fellow PCV, Seth McIntyre, helped me record it in studio room 202 of the Regency Hotel Georgetown.
