Sheri's Midwest Tour

It was Sheri's turn to travel to the Midwest during the first week of June.  She spent several days in West Lafayette, Indiana teaching at The School of Pharmacy at Purdue University. This trip included her annual stay with the Owens-Taylor clan.  In the evenings she enjoyed time with Anja, Isabelle, Connor and Daisy.  Activities included reading books, playing hide and seek, walks with Daisy and a few games of Hangman with Anja.  She even got to do some gardening in-between games and books.

On Friday Sheri travelled with Lynne and Paul to Madison, Wisconsin to celebrate the 75th Birthday of George Zografi.  George was Sheri's professor at UW, and an advisor to Bruno during his postdoctoral studies.  The weekend was full of activities which began with drinks and dinner at The Great Dane Brew Pub.  The weekend also included a visit with Julie (a member of the Brown House and a friend of Paul and Lynne), a trip to the Farmer's Market with Lynne, lunch at Buraka, an Ethiopian restaurant that legendary (according to Lynne and Sheri), an afternoon drinking beer on the terrace and a celebration at George and Dorothy's home with the extended "Zografi family".  It was a great chance for Sheri to catch up with former classmates in Madison and many others with whom she is connected through Professor Zografi.  The weather could not have been better, and the only thing lacking was a little more time to see some other friends, and perhaps one more trip to Buraka for Misirwot.  You can also check out Paul's post on the weekend at this link
