Yup, I talked to Adam Weiss last night on the phone! He called, I didn't recognize the number, so of course I didn't pick up, but he left a funny message, so I called back. He called me out on screening my phone calls, as he should have. That guy is a trip, he's back from Ghana like two weeks, and he's leaving again on Thursday. He's employed for a while at the Carter Center working on a program to improve access to potable water.
Hopefully I'll get to see him the next time he rolls back through the U.S. But to tide me over he sent a picture of the last time we saw each other. I had just moved to Philly in 2003 and he was here for three days of Peace Corps training. I got us lost in University City trying to find a Mexican restaurant that wasn't even that good. But we had good conversation, as is typical with Weiss, and then he left for Ghana. I would like to post the picture, but it's embedded in a word document and I'm not sure if I can just cut and paste it on to blogger. I'll try at a later point when I have more time. But for those of you that know and love Adam Weiss and read my blog, he's safe and happy to have spent some time with his family, but is looking forward to going back to work.
