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 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.
