Peace Corps in Zaire Story - Simba and Tembo

Story from Kathleen Malu, RPCV: Zaïre (Democratic Republic of Congo) 1973-75, Rwanda 1980-81, recently donated two beer bottles to the Museum of the Peace Corps Experience (Tembo and Simba!!)

For over 47 years, these two dark-brown, glass beer bottles sat idly on the top shelf of my bookcase with handicrafts and textbooks from my career teaching English around the world. Now and then, I’d put these old bottles into the recycling bin. But moments later, I always retrieved them.

Read about her story here that includes some great photos from Kathleen's stay
