Sadly, our friend, Don Phelan, who joined us in S. Africa (see May 16, 2008 entry), died Dec. 1, 2010 of lung cancer. We also visited him at his place near Cancun (see Feb. 10 entry on Isla Mujeres) where he was a most generous host. He was a true traveler of the world, an ex-AYH leader and group advisor at leadership training courses. He added much to our adventures in S. Africa (where he joined us May 16, 2008 in Mozambique) being a traveler who understands the uniqueness of being flexible/adaptable on the road which enables us to experience more of what traveling has to offer. We will miss our discussions and his unique insights into people and the world situation.
He always welcomed us to stay when we passed thru Michigan on our way back and forth (see entry Oct. 13, 2009 - East US trip), and was the consumate host. We will miss him greatly.

Previous Photo Entry was Our First Stop In Vancouver, BC...Daphne & John Send us off in a snowstorm for the first leg of our 1 + year journey! Very appropriate. Wish I could have gotten the shot of the two of them waving goodbye in their driveway with the snow gently falling, very picturesque, ha!
