This is the journal of a woman who, shortly after retirement at the age of 67, decides to apply to the Peace Corps. As she begins to document her thoughts in a journal, Sydney Kling details not only her new and baffling daily experiences as a Peace Corps applicant, but also the roller coaster of emotions she finds herself on, whether dealing with the application process or contemplating the reality of leaving home and family for two years in a foreign country.
