I am in my early sixties and live in the San Francisco Bay area. I have worked in information technology management for 37 years, and am also very active in a local adult education program that trains teachers who wish to work in a Rudolf Steiner School (in America these are called Waldorf Schools). I have a 28 year old daughter and a 5 year old grandson who live with me and bring much youthful joy into my life. I lived in Germany in my early 20's and am still very connected to my father's family in Denmark. I love to visit Europe, where I mostly walk, read, visit cafes, sit in parks and watch people living their lives. I genuinely enjoy people and feel at ease most places. This will be my first trip to Belgium and I am very much looking forward to it.
