So I'm hiking to Macchu Picchu to raise money for my 2 favorite organizations - Amnesty International and the Middle Eastern Children's Alliance.
Last night DH and I attended a lecture by Irene Khan,
Secretary General of Amnesty International (it was amazing). Anywho, I
bought her book - The Unheard Truth - and she signed "Good luck in
Macchu Picchu!! - Irene Khan"(!!!) I've already received a thanks from
their regional office, but this was such an honor. She's so freaking
This fundraiser has also brought out the best in people I swear - MIL is not only contributing but it inspired her to reach out to me last night (we both love to travel - she's lived in Italy and France, traveled the Transsiberian Railroad from Russia to China by herself, etc.) after our little tiff in Mammoth - I think its a reminder to her of how similar we are (a little Freudian affirmation, know what I mean?)
