The next frontier.
These are the voyages of Valerie Cooper.
My continuing mission: to explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where few molungos have gone before.

Here are the basics:
I’m a Peace Corps volunteer trainee (PCT) living in the town of Namaacha, Mocambique, just a few minutes from the Swaziland and South Africa borders. Once I’m sworn in as an official volunteer (PCV) on December 12, I’ll move to my site (as yet unknown) and teach English at a rural secondary school. For now, I spend my days learning how to teach English, how to speak Portuguese and how to live and work in a new country, new culture and new mindset.

  1. I can't even begin to think of a better advocate for peace and friendship than you. You represent us well ... and you're a wonderful example of joie de vivre. Be contagious (in the most non-epidemic fashion)!
