Alaska, Part 6: Friends, old and new

The people one meets at these events are really the whole point: deepening relationships with those you already know, and striking new friendships.  I feel lucky whenever I go back to teach a group more than once, because I love to get to know my students.  In this case, I felt closer to the inhabitants of Cordova, and I met new people too!  So often I never have a chance to mingle when I am off teaching. I see the airport, the hotel, and the classroom, period.  I could be in Wichita or Manhattan.   I was very grateful that Dotty allowed us teachers time off to explore, to rest, and to deepen connections.

One way she facilitated that was to have a potluck and everyone from the event was invited.  Two boxes of salmon were grilled to perfection!  And a good time was had by all!
