Memo to Peace Corps Vets
From a private listserv based in Portland, Oregon
One of my more positive futuristic visions, woven into my science fiction (blogs, websites, other social media) is: my “Trucker Exchange Program” also dubbed “Truckers for Peace” (T4P).
Picture yourself as a truck driver in Ethiopia who gets recruited for, or signs up for, an academic program that will let you apprentice on distant routes, such as Beijing-Tehran (part of One Band One Road). Eventually, you might get to drive it solo, or be the teacher for someone new.
