On October 25th, 2014 at the Babur Garden Restaurant in Ocean, 12 RPCVs and their families met to share wonderful Afghan food and their stories about their Peace Corps experience. The highlight of the lunch was a presentation by RPCV Len Oppenheim who, together with the members of his group, created a 20 minute slideshow compilation of their Peace Corps pictures taken during service. Beautiful host country music and voiceovers from the group members accompanied the presentation, and traditional Afghan vegetable dumplings and eggplant dishes were served.
