  1. I read that many refugees were placed by President Obama in the Dakotas. Have you met or seen any Syrian placement refugees? I was reading one story and was very disappointed to read of a Syrian refugee already complaining after being placed about our political system and the media. That was disheartening. In my travels in the Middle East and Korea, I never criticized their government openly and in some cases…may even have been arrested (UAE) if I had criticized them on media. The UAE was generous to teachers, and although some things could have been better…financially and material wise, we were compensated. Just sayin’….hey, enjoy the day. Beautiful weather out there.

  2. The Palouse Falls lies on the Palouse River, about 4 mi (6 km) upstream of the confluence with the Snake River in southeast Washington, United States. The falls are 198 ft (60 m) in height.[2] The falls consists of an upper falls with a drop of ~20 feet (6.1 m) which lies 1,000 feet (305 m) north-northwest of the main drop, and a lower falls, with a drop of 198 feet (60 m). Lynz, are you near this?

    I was curious if any refugees have been placed near your location. I also read of many successful ones adjusting and contributing to life in the States, Europe, and Canada.

  3. I am not as familiar with the Syrians. I had one Syrian student at the University; he is now doing an internship and planning to attend grad school. I have been reading about the ones who left professions and small businesses in Syria.

  4. Makes me yearn to get back to the rural area I grew up in. Hopefully if everything goes right this time next year i will be back in the Hunter Valley. Thanks for posting photos of your corner of the world I always enjoy seeing places I haven’t been.
