Alenka, KIDLINK's KIDFORUM Coordinator, came to Boston for NECC '94 and
apologized for her English though she spoke the language quite well. Her
beautiful smile was contagious and filled the gaps where her English failed
her. She was more brave than I would have been in an unknown city. One
afternoon several of us rode the Boston subway only to find Alenka already
down there by herself on the way to some tourist attraction! Bless her
heart... she was most confident and surely could find her way anywhere.
It was a real pleasure to receive a mail message from her announcing her
return to the United States in August of 1994. Mike Burleigh was visiting me
in Salisbury to help me teach a class on telecommunications, "The Global
Classroom," so we drove to Silver Spring, Maryland and visited her while she
was staying with a very nice family there.
