The Peace Corps Tanzania Doctor House

“It’s totally normal for this guy in my village to wear a pumpkin suit.”

On the season 1 finale of The Optimist Podcast I talked with Frederick Livingston — a Peace Corps Volunteer in Tanzania–about spotting elephants, giraffes and zebras regularly, the frequency of buses breaking down, the laid back Tanzanian culture, building a doctor’s house for his village, and drunk bush babies falling out of trees every night.
