I am glad to be home and start another adventure.

As a final act of closing my United States Peace Corps service, I am ending After School Detention. It has been an incredible two and a half years and I see nothing more fitting than ending my post-undergrad blog with the final act of my Peace Corps experience, my Description of Service (DOS) report. The DOS is documentation of a volunteers service and I took on the requisite as a challenge to summarize a very personal and creative two years in a very personal and creative way. My DOS is not a traditional DOS, nevertheless, it is signed and sealed by Peace Corps Mozambique's Country Director, Ruben Hernandez, making it an official government document. I encourage everyone to download it and read the description in its entirety. I consider it my last work of art in Mozambique. To compare it to a traditional DOS click here.

I read it. It's amazing!
I love the creative spin you put on what could have been just another hum-drum summary.
It's amazing to read that and think on the tremendous journey you have had in the last 2 years. Well done my friend, very well done.
Though I was only in your presence for a brief part of that journey, I will never forget you and your gracious hospitality and friendliness towards us Canadian girls.
You are such a unique human being Patrick and I know the ripple of your impact in Massinga will be felt for years to come.
Best of luck on your future adventures in this life!
