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.
