Approximately two weeks before Christmas, I caught up with a college friend on the phone. At the end of the conversation, I told him I was traveling to Jordan with three other American expats between Christmas and New Years. To my surprise, I found out that he had an interest in joining us! I met this friend in 2004 on summer program with the Business school at Miami University. The program is called “Pacific Rim,” and those that participated refer to each other as “Pac Rimmers.” We visited China, South Korea, Japan, and Hawaii over 6 or 7 weeks. It was an amazing experience with a really great group of people! I keep in contact with quite a few of them, and I actually saw four of them this year!
In addition to a shared love for desserts, we’ve had several adventures together – including skydiving, white water rafting, celebrating 21st birthdays together, and attending four Pac Rim weddings (including his own). How fun to have a 10-year Pac Rim reunion in the Middle East!
