"Experiencing the Americas on Bike: From Argentina to Alaska." Talk by SSU student Guillermo Federico Aimar @ 2-3 p.m. - 104 International Hall
Guillermo will share his experiences bicycling from Patagonia/Argentina to Alaska. During his four years on the road, seeing the Americas at eye level and bicycle speed, and meeting many people from different cultures, Guillermo discovered the difference between a traveler and a tourist: He decided to step out of the tourist role as a passive observer of other cultures, who does not scratch below the surface, and instead become an interactive participant in other cultures, gaining an understanding of the deep culture of other people and places. Presented by the Zeta Tau Chapter of Phi Beta Delta, the Honor Society for International Scholars at Sonoma State University. For more information about Guillermo's travels, see https://vimeo.com/138365068 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB2m2nka5Us
