Susan and Jackie

One of the real bonuses from a trip is the opportunity to make new friends, and we were fortunate on this voyage to befriend Yuval and Susan Zaliouk. Yuval is a retired Musical Director for the Toledo Symphony and Susan is a retired dancer for the Royal Ballet of London.  Together they went on to found an international cookie company that sells the Almondina brand.  And you should try them! The Zaliouks are a fascinating and totally enjoyable couple and our friendship continues.
