Vicarious Voyagers goes “South of the Border” this spring to learn more about our southern neighbors via our presenters’ slide shows. Coordinator Ruth Kreuzer is herself an avid traveler. Her more recent out-of-country travels include: Newfoundland and Spain. Wherever Ruth goes, her camera goes with her.

Four southern adventures await you (in this order):

1) Juanita Babcock – “The Inca Trail” (Peru and Bolivia with Road Scholar tour group)

2) Lynn and Nils Ekfelt – “Floating among the Treetops in the Amazon Rainforest” (with Ecotour Expeditions) “We spent a week in Brazil cruising on the Rio Negro and the Amazon, never seeing another tour boat and only a very few local people. Mostly it was just us and the orchids and the monkeys.” Lynn

3) Steven White and Esthela Calderón – “Nicaragua: Nature and Traditions.” (A personal view from two SLU teachers, both poets and the co-authors of the book Culture and Customs of Nicaragua, Greenwood Press).

4) David Powers – “Chile, Where the Land Ends.” (A personal view from David, who has lived off and on in Chile for about 5 years of his adult life. His wife, Lya, is a native of Chile. They return to her homeland every few years for a visit.)
