“I love the opportunities to meet the people wherever I travel, and Grand Circle provided many such opportunities on this trip. I was impressed with the hopeful attitude and unquenchable spirit of the people who have lived most of their lives under repressive communist regimes. One highlight was having each Program Director describe his/her life under communism and how it changed after 1989.”
