The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none. - Thomas Carlyle 1975-1881

    Project Harmony



    Make sure to visit the Project Harmony web site. This is one of the best organizations involved in US, Russian exchange - and they've been at it for a long time (since the days when US and Russian exchange was limited mainly to music and performing arts). Colleen Halley does a super job with their site (and with the Internet School Linkages Program).
