My co-workers


I frequently mention the two women who work in the office with me and thought I’d share their photos. Yesterday was “Batik Day,” like every Friday, and they came dressed appropriately – and wanting to take pictures with me. These are cellphone pics so quality is poor. The dress Mawar is wearing was made from a length of batik fabric I brought back for her from Bali.

Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.
