Ken is Japanese, I'm an American, but we're currently living in Bangkok, Thailand. We've recently retired from the int'l development field, and decided to keep our youngest two children (16 and 15) in international schools until they're ready to return to the US for college. We travel frequently, and have older children living in the US in various places, and try to get to see them, or have them come and explore an interesting place with us, as often as we can.
We love museums, parks, excellent food, wonderful coffees and teas, and beautiful places, preferably with mountains nearby to keep us feeling centered, and not missing the Himalayas where we lived for many years, too, too badly.
We're big animal lovers (both dogs and cats) though ours don't travel with us to such far off places! We're happy to find places where we can hang out with a resident kitty or doggy though!
