The difficult part is narrowing down the most enjoyable part of my experience
By Harry Glynn
Sri Lanka is probably the most beautiful and interesting place I have ever visited. I get to see elephant crossings, giant lizards, mongoose, and mobs of monkeys rolling through courtyards.
In June of 2013, thanks to the generous support of the Barry Metzger Fund, Princeton in Asia sent its first two fellows to Sri Lanka, a tear-drop shaped tropical island off the coast of India which was been marred by a long and bitter civil war that ended in 2009.
After teaching English in Japan 31 years ago, Page Thompson set his sights on Asia once again. As the new President of International Operations for Universal Parks & Resorts, he returns to the region frequently. His work even brought him back to Osaka, Japan, his old PiA stomping ground.
In addition to teaching English at Cần Thơ University (CTU) in southern Vietnam, Kyle and Richard also run the Can Tho Youth Empowerment Project (CTYEP) – the first PiA Carriebright project started in 2005.
