1987 and 1989, while working as a Peace Corps Volunteer, the author
lived without electricity or running water in a bamboo hut by the side
of a river in Southern Leyte, Philippines. Misadventures in Maasin
tells the humorous story of this young and inexperienced American in
his first cross-cultural encounter. Singing coworkers, flying cats,
traipsing rats, perplexing bats . . . it’s all here.
