Town Square

Back to Vietnam for an ex-flight attendant

Original post made by Jeb Bing, editor of the Pleasanton Weekly, on May 8, 2009

Those of us who know Nancy Pennell, and there are no doubt hundreds in Pleasanton who do, also know that she's hard to track down. A world traveler who celebrated her 65th birthday two years ago with others her age in Paris and then cruising the south of France, she's as comfortable on trans-European trains and the streets of Beijing as she is on medical missions or at Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce mixers or downtown Rotary Club trips to El Salvador to distribute free wheelchairs to the handicapped.

Classic Pleasanton Weekly. The picture shown in the newspaper-of Ms Pennell-states it was taken in Vietnam. Not correct. The background is clearly one of the temples of Angkor Wat in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Awesome place, if you ever get the opportunity to go-by all means do!
