The Potala Palace, Lhasa,
Tibet, home of the Dali
Llama. The 700 steps to the
top are made even harder
due to the 12,000 ft altitude.
In April, 2016, Bruce and Judy
traveled to China and Tibet.
The daily 3 pm monks
debating session at the Sera
Monastery in Lhasa.
Becoming a Monk requires a
lifetime of study. All things
pertaining to life are
debated in this open air
garden.
The highlight of the trip for
me was climbing the Great
Wall. This part has all been
rebuilt and is in good
shape. I climbed to Smoke
Tower # 7, about twice as
far as the tower on the hill.
There were already walls
around most cities, and the
Emperor connected them to
make the Great Wall.
In September, 2016, nine
current and former Kronies
along with 7 other friends
traveled to Sicily. In a
restaurant in Maraza, we all
learned from a Sicilian Chef
how to cook an Italian dinner.
Pizza, Pesto, pasta and
dessert. Christel led the trip
and was joined by Fran,
Bruce, Gloria and Julie, all
active members. Our 24 year
old guide could not believe
that we had been skiing
together for 40 years. We
visited a ski area at 6000 feet
on Mt Etna that was buried in
lava in 2002, but back it is
operation when the snow
falls.
At a dairy farm in Castelluccio, Sicily, we all helped prepare lunch; made bread, ricotta cheese, tiaramasu,
picked vegetables and milked a cow. Can you find 8 Kronies in the photo and Guide Luca? The rest are
friends and the family of farmers.
Syndey Opera House. Still
the best known modern
building in the world. Bruce
and Judy saw it on the
inside and went to a play
there during a 5 week trip
Down Under in October,
2017.
