Lisa is a traveller with a day job in Washington, DC. For the past decade (and counting) at least one trip a year has been spent with Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village program, building houses with community members.
Global Village is a great way to get out of the usual tourist areas and spend time in small communities and with people. I wrote a blog post for Story District about how I got started with the Global Village program.
When not building houses, I am often looking for a concert or a quiet place to read a good book. If you know of either, invite me along. I pack a mean picnic.
