This was a photo my mom snapped. I remember tagging along on my brother’s field trip to a museum in Tainan (Taiwan). I am not sure why we are standing so close to her either. In the photo I am in the red T-shirt, my brother’s best friend is behind me and my brother is in the Mickey Mouse T-shirt. I really wish I was old enough to talk to her then because she is such an inspiring woman. This is the little story of how I “met” Jane Goodall.

“One Lovely Blog Award”

I have to say that the best thing about blogging is finding others with the same interest, being encouraged and learning new things from people around the world. It was an unexpected event to be receiving the nomination but I’m thrilled and I appreciate it very much.  I’m not proud of posting this so much later but here it is!
