Now that I am back and settled back in from my trip to Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Qatar (though I am still experiencing jet lag), I thought I would write to let you know how much I appreciated all the hard work you put into planning the trip to Sri Lanka. It truly was a trip of a lifetime and I will never forget it. The care and thought that was put into planning the trip was obvious. We got to see so much of the country and appreciate it for all of its diversity. Thank you much for pulling it all together. Thanks again for everything,

Sharon L. Taylor
