We are a bunch of ladies coming from varied and diverse backgrounds. We met in Beijing, trailing spouses who volunteered with the parent organization at our children's school. Through the common experience of being a stranger in a strange land, our friendship was forged in the latter half of our lives. It doesn't matter that we've known each other only a handful of years. It was enough to form life-long relationships.
They say true friends pick up where they left off no matter how long apart they've stayed. How true, how true! We spent a few days in the bucolic paradise of Bali....eating, shopping, talking, laughing, playing, drinking.
And all too soon, we have to separate again to our respective countries. But plans of our next trip have started to germinate already.....and I look forward to that, wherever/whenever it may be!
