We started out the new year with one volunteer, Simon Winch, working on the Eco Ecuador Project. In early January Peter arrived, and about a week later Brian Teinert, who has been hired as chief of operations for Planet Drum’s projects, arrived to carry on the work. Peter has been busy organizing the projects in Bahia and introducing Brian to everyone. On the side, he composed the following dispatches.
In early November Peter returned to Bahia. Several Planet Drum staffers also decided to go to Bahia and volunteer there. Peter’s dispatches from this trip are listed below.
