This morning opened with sunny weather and I was glad that the threat of rain had passed. Everyone arrived at the starting point in time for us to begin on schedule — there were four groups from various parts of the United States, including Miami and Washington D.C., plus Tatiana Balabanis, a Wells International Foundation intern, for a total of nine persons.

For much of the tour, I was able to find places for the clients to sit in shady spots while I gave my presentation. Consequently, by the end of the two-hour walk, I think that most of them still had energy to pursue whatever activities they had planned for the rest of the day.

I enjoyed chatting with these women. I learned that one is a judge of a high court, another is a veterinarian, and a third is professor of psychology at a university.

A good time was had by all!
