I love airbnb ! ! ! And recycling and Goodwill and minimalism. Grew up in East Africa in the Shangri-La (a mystical, harmonious valley, synonymous with any earthly paradise) that was Nairobi Kenya in the late 60's, early 70's. The last two years of Africa we lived up in the country in the valleys of tea on a dairy farm. From Kenya, Lived in Palo Alto California 25 yrs, presently in Oregon. I love exploring new places and people. Work with Special Education as a one-to-one with elementary children. My most recent endeavor is working with a 3 1/2 yr old. who has Angelman Syndrome. Learning to taste and test out new wines and coffee. Sisters Espresso Blend is the most favorite at the moment. I play with paint, photos, jewelry, decoupage. Love to cook and invent new tastes.
