As you might know, I spent 9 weeks in Vietnam this fall as a volunteer consultant to a new university. But while there I took photos, trying to capture both the stunning vitality of modern Vietnam, and also its very threatening environmental issues, from the air pollution problems of having a population of 100 million people largely using two-cycle scooter and motorbike engines for transport, to very ominous sea rise: Vietnam’s usable land area is tabletop flat with only tiny elevations above sea levels.
So our Dec. 11 program will be a little different: a PPT show on my stay, with some attention to agriculture and bees in Vietnam.
Desserts and coffee as usual. 6:30 for business meeting and hive check-in (with a call for requested program topics for 2020), program at 7. At the West Auburn Congregational Church vestry, 811 West Auburn Rd.
