doug — off the record

just a place to share some thoughts

On the Road to Mozambique

Sharon Peters and I have a tradition.  We get together for breakfast at Christmas time.  Well, we’ve done it twice so I guess that qualifies as a tradition!  I’ve long been a fan of her involvement in Education Without Borders.  When we first met for breakfast, she was interested in talking about the Ontario Professional Learning Network.  So, we chatted and chatted and chatted.  Sharon was back in Windsor over the holidays from her teaching job in Mozambique and so we met again for breakfast.  Like good discussions, it was like we had never left the first one!

As I had previously blogged, I had walked into a trap at the most recent ECOO Conference.  I was unable to attend a previous conference and my friends had designed this elaborate scheme.  I’m told that it was @MKGoindi who was most behind it and she enlisted the help of some of her friends.  I should actually sit down and see who all was involved.

All in all, it was a great experience.

At the end of it, I managed to get a couple of ribbons.  One of them travelled to Philadelphia to the hands of @DoReMiGirl who was good enough to share a picture.

I had one more and so I couldn’t think of a nicer person to have it than Sharon – as long as she shared the trip.  Her pictures arrived today.

First Heathrow

Then Johannesburg

and finally to Maputo.

Those little ribbons sure have put on some mileage.

Thanks, everyone who contributed to this story.
