Armchair Traveler - Food Around the World
Join us in the Great room at 4pm for a wonderful armchair traveler presentation, Food around the World, focusing on France. Ansley Roberts will be talking about her recent travels abroad where she spent six months in France. If there is one theme prevalent throughout that entire country it would be the great food. She spent a semester abroad in Paris, France studying European history and culture at Institut Catholique de Paris. During her semester in Paris she was able to taste all France had to offer from Normandy to Nice. In her Armchair Traveler presentation, Ansley will discuss all the delectable delights France has to offer. After the presentation stick around to enjoy some cheeses, breads, and desserts in French style. Thank you to the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation for making this event possible.

Armchair Traveler about Myanmar in SE Asia
If there is one theme prevalent throughout that entire country it would have to be Pagodas, the golden Buddhist temples which are constructed in the hundreds of thousands across the land. Wherever he ended up, he could always be certain to be welcomed by one of these looming golden spires. Preston will talk about train travel on British colonial era railways, traditional Burmese marionette performance and crawling through the dusty chambers of ancient stone temples. He'll also bring along examples of Burmese textiles, currency, and a few audio recordings he made while visiting!
