May 10 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 pm
May Zoom meeting will be on May 10 th , the second Monday in May at 6:00P.M.
A Pebble in the Sand
Pierre Odier, one of my favorite speakers, will share his latest volume of his A Pebble the Sand series, Burma/Myanmar. His past programs have taken us to Tibet, the Orient Express, Mongolia, some minority tribes in China. He focuses on the minority ethnic tribes of the Golden Triangle of Burma. This rugged area which includes tribes of headhunters is within walking distance of the Chinese border. Many of the tribes had ties with areas in China. One of Pierre’s great gifts is his ability to communicate and quickly connect with all kinds of people and his love of ethnic arts and crafts. He is not the ordinary tourist. Experience Burma though the eyes and photographs of Pierre and gain insights on ethnic people you would never imagine.
