Looking out on Bamiyan valley.

Shar-e-gulgullah, the city of screams, where Ghengis Khan killed all the city residents because of the death of his grandson at their hands. Posted by Picasa

Remember This?

It's 1963 and we're with Entezar in class. Do you recognize the faces that belong to the backs of these heads? Wow - 42 years ago and counting!

How's this for a guess:

Susan and Dennis closest to camera.

Next row - Joan (Cherry) French?, Edith Ing? Joe Michaud, George Zoller?

Next row in - Jay McCune (or is that Edith Ing to his left?) , Beverly Anderson, Barbara Meyer, Betsy Lebenson (head on arm)?

Next row in - Vince Hutnak (don't remember who wore that bright yellow/orange plaid jacket) on the left, the Kapells on the far right?

Whaddya think?
