Next Meetup

Nov. 11 - 26: JRH + Humphrey Fellow Reunion in Brazil
Humphrey Fellows from Brazil from years past became part of our James River Hiker family during their stay in Richmond. For the next two weeks three of them will return the favor by hosting Dennis and introducing him to their world. The journey routes first to Brasilia home of Zaira Taveira (HF 17- 18). Then to Florianopolis home of Fernanda De Conto, (HF 13-14). And finally to Rio de Janeiro home of Andre Kiepper (HF 17- 18). James River Hikers who befriended Zaira, Fernanda and Andre can view photos of them posted with this Meetup as the journey progresses.
