Music, Movies, and Books

Too many places to go, people to visit, things to do, and so little time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

hitched to Timbuktu, Mali, right before Al Queda took over the region (Yes, there is a place called Timbuktu!)

Teach, Learn, Share

How to do a handstand. Would love to learn more about wines.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I like bringing a bottle of one of my favorite California wines, pinot noir, to share, and sometimes food, if there is time. I'm a foodie and a student of food history. Sometimes I cook and talk! :)

Countries I’ve Visited

Botswana, Djibouti, Egypt, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Thailand, Zambia

Countries I’ve Lived In

France, Japan, Sierra Leone, South Africa, South Korea, United States, Zimbabwe
