I had hoped to write a bit more about this yesterday, however packing took me a bit longer than I had planned (*shakes fist at allergies or cold or whatever is causing me to be stuffy and cough*)
Long story short – as many of you know I’m involved with People to People International. Through this organization, my mom (who is in her local Chicago chapter) met the head of Children’s Library International.
This trip is the 38th mission for CLI, and during the trip we will be opening a learning center in My Lai. We will also be visiting some of the other learning centers the group has opened, visiting orphanages, and doing a bit of typical tourist stuff too.
I am excited for this trip and looking forward to seeing a new part of the world. Not excited to be on plane with stuffy sinuses, but I will be attempting to take meds to make it less painful.
Some background reading:
- Children’s Library International
- My Lai American Legacy Library Learning Center
- PBS American Experience – My Lai
Now it’s time for me to start getting ready for a long day of travel ahead of me. Wish me, and my sinus pressure, luck!
