Who is Lizard?
It didn't start with Lizard. It started with Wizzie, then Wiz, followed by a series of names with no particular order that are as follows: Lizzie, Liz, Lizzie Bird, Za, Lizanna, and even Díenéba.
The full name is Elizabeth Anna Buttram, but most she interacts with these days call her Lizard.
But who is 🦎 beyond the name?
She was a Peace Corps Volunteer…
Why the “was”?
Because 6 months into her service, living in Senegal, West Africa, the global epidemic caused Peace Corps Volunteers worldwide to be evacuated and sent back stateside…
And that’s where she’ll be picking up from to tell her story on this platform.
If you stick around, you’ll find yourself following along with an exciting journey. You’ll emerse your mind in the Casamance River in Sub-Sarahan West Africa, where water came from deep wells and hot tea was constantly served on equally hot days. You’ll journey in a camper truck with two foolish love birds traveling the country together. You might find yourself reading stories of the rainforest and fer de lance snakes in Costa Rica. Maybe you’ll be taken on a journey of what life on the road is like, from the places you end up to the people that stumble into your life. It might even lead to a daring hike bare footed across Spain, on the Camino De Santiago.
This blog is her journey; raw, real, full of incredible highs and heart-wrenching lows.
Perhaps you’ll follow along on this mysterious, incredible trip that could be called Lizard’s life. If you do, it is with hope you’ll find yourself able and happy to support her along her travels, keeping her adventures alive, and likewise, your thrilling reading material thriving.
