Friends and Flags Teachers Meet!

During a trip to the US in  October 2001,  Birgit P. from Denmark ( left)  made a special stop in  Queens , New York to visit her Friends and Flags partner,  teacher, Sue R (right). 

Birgit and Sue were circle partners in the first year of the project 1999 and have collaborated on projects ever since!

On Monday, November12th, 2001  Karen Eini, ( Project Coordinator) was in New York for a conference and  was also very happy to be able to visit Sue . Though our visit coincided with the plane crash in Queens, we found comfort in each others company.
