And a mentor of mine who was a health officer of the U.S. AID mission in La Paz Bolivia was encouraging me to go to Peru. There was Sendero Luminoso Shining Path, a terror terrorist operation in Peru that was closing many of the official Americans to have to leave Peru and they were looking for people who were willing to go into dangerous circumstances and to be able to continue to support the health and child survival activities with the Ministry of Health. I really didn’t want to work for the US government. I resisted and Paul told me. ‘No, no, no it’ll be a good opportunity for you to learn the folk ways of the enemy.’
