Rhett Power served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Uzbekistan from 2000 to 2001. He taught business courses in a college in Bukhara and served as a small business consultant at a time when Uzbekistan was still emerging from the planned economy of the Soviet era. He recounts Uzbeks' reactions to the 9/11 Twin Tower attacks and the subsequent evacuation of Peace Corps Volunteers. He talks about his continuing close ties with the Uzbek family with whom he and his wife, a fellow volunteer, lived while in the country.
