Mary and Dean Booher will share their adventures South of the Border on Friday, April 5 at the Jesup Memorial Library beginning at 7 p.m. with a presentation about the contrasts they observed in Oaxaca, Mexico during a trip there in November and December. Their slideshow is called “Mexico We Know and Love.”
The Bar Harbor couple had a peaceful and fascinating trip there – a marked contrast, they said, to the sensational media-fueled images of gang violence and kidnappings.
“Culture in Mexico and Oaxaca in particular is very rich, encompassing all the arts,” said Dean.
