The Commonwealth Club of California in association with the NorCal Peace Corps Association will present, “Around the World in 65 Days” with Karen Keefer, RPCV/Nigeria & Liberia, X-staff/HQ, Co-Founder NPCA and RPCV/W.

Saving frequent flier miles since 1984, Karen used them all on business class fare to go around the world – adding 12 mostly Peace Corps countries to the 60 she had already visited. Her personalized route included: Indochina, Indonesia, Australia, five southern African countries and Poland. She will share her photos and engrossing stories with the Club – pointing out highlights, surprises, frightening episodes, learning experiences and happy times.

A networking reception will begin at 5:30 at the San Francisco Club Office, 525 Market St. (2nd floor), which is at the corner of 2nd St. and Market, above the Montgomery St. BART Station.
