Icelandic Educational Network
Lara, who is Educational Director for ISMENNT, joined us at NECC '94 in Boston
and won our hearts immediately. She and I arrived at the Boston airport
within minutes of each other that June evening last year. I stepped foot into
the terminal after the flight and there she was! We didn't stop talking all
the while the taxi drove us to our hotels. Though we were not staying at the
same hotel we were just a few minutes walk apart.
At the hotel room later that evening Lara gave me pictures of her son, Gisli
Tryggvi, a favorite keypal of ours from the Infant Project. In my suitcase I
had packed a small red toy Maryland crab for him. During the Infant Project
Lara sent my students an Icelandic coin set. While in Boston she gave me an
Icelandic bill and I was fascinated by the Braille marking on it.
