Do you remember me, Bernie? Lalla (Elizabeth Jones) I was the only 7th grader and took French with Mme. Baron by the swimming pool. That was 1971-72. Actually we left in Jan 72 to go to Delhi. Melissa and Becky Sammel went to Delhi with me.
I don't remember that you were RPCV! I did PC for 3 yrs - 1980-81 in Cote d'Ivoire, 881-83 in Zaire. Was TEFL. Am still abroad teaching EFL at Kuwait University. My family often thinks about Lash and how wonderful our time was there. Dad (Digger Jones) will be 87 this month, Mom (Suzy Jones) turned 80 last month.
