When my mother was in her early 20’s, she went on this expedition called Operation Raleigh. She sailed to England for the inauguration of the Operation (she always tells me, “I SHOOK HANDS WITH PRINCE CHARLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”), New York, North Carolina, Miami, and then to the Bahamas to conduct some scientific projects. Some of her friends from the O.R. organization who went on subsequent expeditions to various places came to our apartment for dinner!
It was great company, and everyone had stories to tell.
We ate curry nabe (stew-style dish), and delicious dessert….. ^________^
