Presented by Rick and Robin Swenson:
“Slovakia: Little Tiger of Europe"

May 18, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
The Great Hall, Annie Wright Schools, Tacoma


Rick and Robin Swenson with daughter Nora (AWS blue tie 2008) spent a year in Slovakia (formerly Czechoslovakia) in 2004. This gem of a country was behind the Iron curtain for nearly 3 decades. Rick, an AWS teacher for the past 25 years, had been awarded a one year Fulbright teacher exchange and traded places with a younger IB physics teacher.

Their Slovakian experiences included many delightful opportunities as well as a few annoying challenges – both of which are to be expected during an international adventure. It’s called life!

Slovakia has been called the Little Tiger of Europe.  It is a wonderfully proud and industrious country, full of history, survivors and dreamers.  Rick and Robin will try, with anecdotes and pictures, to share a little of its magic with you.
