TRAVEL — Meri Murphy of the Spokane Mountaineers will detail her the post retiremed trip she made — for eight months! — in the Middle East and Africa during a free program tonight, 7 p.m. at Mountain Gear Headquarters, 6011 E. Mansfield.

 Murphy departed Spokane one week after retiring for a low-cost adventure in Middle East (2 months) — Turkey, Syria (whew!), Lebanon, Dubai, Oman.

Then Africa: (6 months): South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania/Zanzibar, Rwanda.

She'll show her slides and talk about the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly.

Her one word summary of her journey: “Fabulous.”
