I am working with the Sister-Cities Organization in Anderson -- we are linked to Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. While in Thailand, I taught teachers of English methods of teaching English as a Foreign Language. I helped to write the materials we used online, and the teachers there will be able to teach others from the same materials. In Cambodia, we were guests of the Minister of the Interior and his family, and we had a great experience visiting one of the wonders of the world -- Angkor Wat. I recommend a visit there to anyone who can go!
