Please Pre-Pay $30 by Friday August 7 at 5pm.  When you pay, you’ll be asked to share your level of experience with paddleboarding and yoga. We’ll also ask for your height and weight - this is so the instructor can select the best paddleboard for you.

Discussion with Author Paul Pometto 
Friday, August 21 from 7 to 8pm 
Zoom
RSVP: http://evite.me/aUsgC3yzzv


Join us for a discussion with SDPCA member Paul Pometto (Benin ‘74 – ‘76) about his extensive travels and his new book Crossing the Sahara Desert, a journal description of his trek from Benin to Tunisia:

Having just completed a two-year program as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa in 1976, Paul was determined to take the "long way" back home.  After studying Michelin maps and borrowed guide books, he decided to cross the Sahara Desert, take a boat to Italy, and then fly back to Washington, D.C.  On foot, in the back of trucks, in buses and trains ... his month-long journey encountered strong friendships, physical exhaustion, priceless vistas, deep frustrations, and beautiful cultures.  

Paul went on to work for the US State Department for 38 years, including serving as Deputy Chief of Mission in Cape Verde and Djibouti. Paul has visited 160 countries so far and is hoping to visit the remainder in the coming years.
