My first blog post ever. Exactly two weeks from today I leave the good old USA for my newest adventure. My indirect route to Thailand starts with 10 days in Italy. YIPPEE. Will spend three days with my dear friend Katia near Bologna. Can’t wait to meet my honorary grand-niece Atena, her daughter who will be one on August 5.
Itinerary includes seeing “AIDA” at the Verona Arena on July 19. Then, maybe, four days on Lake Garda in Sirmione.
July 25 my flight leaves Milano for a Cairo on Egypt Air. Then a non-stop flight to Bangkok and another short flight to Chiang Mai.
In case you don’t know, I’m moving to Pai, Thailand, 100 miles north of Chiang Mai, to help open a school for Burmese refugee children. We’ll open in November with a pilot school for 3-6 year olds. Go to: burmeserefugeeproject.org for more information.
That’s all for now–
