    Our thanks to Iko and Matsuko for their delightful presentation about the traditions of Japanese kimonos.  Matsuko, known as the "Kimono Ambassador", had everyone try her hand at making an origami kimono to demonstrate how they are made.  Members modeled to show that kimonos really are one size fits all.

    The Cultural Exchange program got off to an interesting start. 

    Chris told us about her 500-mile walk on "The way of St. James", from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. She and her husband walked for about one week/year, for 4 years to cover the distance. People she met, wonderful landscapes, hostels and meals in great company were all captured in her collection of photos. Thank you for sharing your adventure!

    Tatjana introduced the audience to the world of dates: varieties, places where they grow, uses, and health benefits. We got to taste a variety of dates and date-based dishes. A wonderful trip to the regions where dates grow.

    Potluck dishes:

    Potluck   Macedonian Stuffed Peppers

    Some members travel to Boston, others leave the city to see family and friends far away. In any case, today was a great opportunity to catch up with friends who happen to be in town, or who could get away from work for a little while. We should definitely do this more often!

    Those who could not make it - we missed you.

    Enjoy the rest of your summer, everybody !

    Thank you, Eva, for organizing the visit to the Gropius House in Lincoln, an example of German Bauhaus architecture.  After the guided tour, we all enjoyed a picnic lunch on the back screened porch overlooking the gardens.

    Many thanks to all the organizers for putting together this year's AGM and to all the Executive Committee members for their hard work in keeping the IWCB running smoothly all year.  After dispensing with business, we all enjoyed the potluck of international dishes brought in by our multicultural members.

    Thank you, Robin, for another interesting and informative Cultural Exchange! Rosemie and Ulrike treated us to talks on the history of jewelry, including images and some history on their own exquisite personal collections.  Stela gave a presentation on her beautiful homeland of Moldova, and Irina told us about her work with the Love is Kind organization which helps needy children in her country.  Irina, Angela, Natalia and Stela demonstated the Hora din Moldova, the country's national folk dance.  Joann finished up with another thought-provoking short film from Australia.

    The Ayer Mansion is a gem on Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay.

    The tour given by a staff member was very informative: about the Mansion's history and many owners, its designer Louis Comfort Tiffani and his many pieces throughout the house, the restoration efforts and its current use as a residence for college students.

    Afterwards members had lunch at Pho Countryside nearby.

    Thank you Suzanne for leading the visit, and Meri for suggesting the Mansion and the restaurant.

    We had a beautiful day to walk down from Evelyne's house to observe the first women and men runners making their way toward the finish line after Heartbreak Hill, followed by our book discussion during lunch in the garden.  Thank you, Evelyne, for hosting!

    Many thanks to Dr. Theodore Steinman for showing his documentary "A Battalion Surgeon's Story of the Vietnam War" and for sharing his experiences and perspectives from the time he served in combat in the U.S. Marines in 1966-67. 

    We were also treated to a narrative and slides from Ines about her cruise and bike tour to the Iles de la Madeleine.  Thank you to Ines, and to Robin for organizing the program!
