Laurie brought in the paraphernalia a bee keeper needs and explained the work of bees and their keepers to bring us a taste of honey! With tales of swarms and the short lives of these fascinating insects he had us captivated!
Jenny told us of her personal connections to Nepal and was preparing to lead an Emergency Team there, as part of the earthquake relief missions.
Jenny’s main topic was the Silk Road. Jenny’s mode of travel was with an adventure tour in a truck-bus suited to the gruelling conditions found in the ‘stans i.e. Uzbekistan and other countries between China and Turkey. The photos of the people and the bazaars gave us a taste of Jenny’s adventure!
Thank you Laurie and Jenny!
