“We are having the best country.” / Photo by Nora Westcott

“We are having the best country” is a little Peace Corps The Gambia motto that, for me, is perfectly captured in this photo. I am here for Gambia’s children, and the children are often the ones supporting me. The kids love to see us volunteers living in and helping their country, but it’s also their belly laughs, toothless grins and endless hugs that make Gambia the best host country for us volunteers. Here, my two-year-old nephew Muhammed drools all over me while he giggles and tries to say my name, “Tata.”
