Past & Future Presentations
« on: Sep 16, 09, 07:57 AM »
Since we started, thanks to all our presenters, we have covered the following countries in our monthly gatherings.

Any suggestion/request for topics in future? Rural towns in US? Off-the-beaten track in Western Europe?

Any preference for themes instead of country preso's? Eco-tourism? Nature? Food? 'Panel' discussion on RTW trips? Sabbatical leave? Transiberian trips?

so wee cheng. would the timing be tight for 3 talk? i setting aside 11th dec but my roster will only be out on 30 nov. so once confirmed, i can do a small side presentation on central north india, covering allahabad with the 4yearly kumbh mela festival, as well as varanasi and delhi/agra. can do 20mins on it concisely, or longer if u like. but problem is i probably can only do in dec, as jan i have hi key ICT, feb-apr i having intense course/exams and some overseas courses. only in may then may be free.

or i have to ask mat about it?

but i hope this pxn i can get to know more ppl. and hopefully can gel up a small group for mexico 2010 nov photographic trip mid-budget trip hopefully set at 3k. below 4k, somewhat like my bosnia and croatia trip recently, which is abt 2-2.5k. and best if someone speaks spanish.

sufang, may, kelly and some of my travel mates must be thinking what happen when i only last talk abt turkmenistan and uzbekistan, and nicaragua. but now i really find something that got the elements i want - photographic varities, festival strong colors, friendly people, narrow alley, cheap to go around, edible food, fair safety and most importantly a cool non-sweaty weather of 10-25. covering

mex city, for hx and urban folks
oxaca fest of dead, (highlight)
tehuacan cactus forest,
cuetzalan for local folks,
teotithucan for ruins,
maripsoas el rosario for buttlefiles flooding,
Guanajuato for museum of dead and underground transport
Leon for international hot air balloon festival

getting exciting. too early to post a new thread to discusss? hahahaha....

Hi Zoosch, remind me again...can't remember who you are. I am better in remembering names than nicknames.

Thanks for offering to present, but timing is too tight for 3 talks.  We should stick with 2.  Kumbh Mela/Allahabad/Varanasi sounds exciting - maybe we can do a 10min Brief Moment session for that. We have topics/speakers lined up till April.  Fine if you are only available in May.  I can put your name down for May if that is so.
