I've lived in Albuquerque since 1976 but grew up on the West Coast. Been retired a little more than a year. Spending most time now hiking, cross county skiing, yoga twice weekly and drive a van for the senior centers. This is my fifth year hosting high school exchange students. This year Dhanizar is from Indonesia. These kids have so enriched my life. It's like traveling without leaving home, altho I am traveling as much as possible. Spent six weeks in Nepal and Bhutan last fall and had a fabulous time trekking and touring. We will be on Big Island for most of the month of April and plan to snorkel every day and also do a couple of boat dives.
