Wow, this is the longest I have ever gone without being able to post something here on the website. Sorry! It’s been a combination of travel schedules, busy times when I needed to be at places here in Kentucky, and attention to work that has followed me from Cambodia that has kept me offline. I hope tomorrow, Saturday (it’s 10:41 PM Friday night here in Kentucky as I write) will allow me to start posting about this trip.
I am sorry for the missed post yesterday. I was swamped with stuff as I prepared to leave. I’m heading to the airport in twenty minutes to go to the US for meetings. From there I go to more meetings in Taiwan before returning to Phnom Penh on 30 October. I arrive in New York Wednesday night and hope to be able to post then.
This was my last day in Europe. At least it started there, in Rome, and ended up in Asia as I flew to Bangkok overnight from Istanbul. Click here to see pictures from Istanbul.
I still want to post some more photos and commentary from my trip to Europe but just ran out of time today to prepare the pictures. I hope to get back to that on Friday.
The conference ended, I spent the day working at the Maryknoll house and then taking a last walk around Rome. Click here for sights from the day plus some pictures of the Maryknoll house in Rome.
This was the final day of the Catholic deaf conference. There was a sight-seeing tour in the morning and then a free afternoon with a dinner in the evening. Click here for view of the day.
Today was the most important day of the conference, with an opportunity to meet Pope Francis and some of his advisors. It was another day spent at the Vatican. Click here for some pictures from the day.
Today was the first full day of the conference and it involved touring the Vatican Museum and then celebrating a liturgy together in the afternoon. Click here to see some of the sights.
