Hi! My name is Michele Lichtman. I live in the Washington, D.C. area on the east coast of the United States. I work at a law firm, and travel for fun. I particularly love to scuba dive, which has taken me to many far-flung parts of the world. I'm looking forward to spending more time this year on dry land (my last land-based vacation was to Argentina in 2007 - everything else has been for diving!), and particularly a trip to visit friends in France in May of 2012.
