May 2017 Dear Travelers and Friends, Visiting the home of a prominent Beijing art collector. Meeting one of the world’s most creative designers in her Tokyo textile studio. Walking with a renowned expert in Buddhist art around a sacred stupa. Ever since we led our first program to India in 1995, Arrangements Abroad has been bringing the magic and mystery of Asia to travelers. We are proud to continue this special tradition in the coming year. Closer to home, we return to alluring Argentina and Mexico on itineraries distinguished by private collections and superb vineyards, and cutting-edge art. Here are some of the unique opportunities we offer this season: • Undiscovered China: From Ancient Cities to Modern Shanghai, October 8 to 20, 2017 with Claire Moore View a Beijing collector’s private repository of contemporary art, discover UNESCO-listed Buddhist caves in Dunhuang, admire Xi’an’s terra-cotta warriors, and visit two UNESCO-listed classical gardens in Suzhou. Conclude in vibrant Shanghai, known as “the Paris of the East.” • Japan: Ancient Traditions, Modern Art & Architecture, October 13 to 24, 2017 with Beatrice Galilee From Tokyo to Kyoto, tour museums with curators, meet textile designer Reiko Sudo at her studio, and spend two nights on Naoshima, the tiny island dotted with avant-garde art. Enjoy regional cuisine, a tea ceremony, and a journey by bullet train. • India: In the Footsteps of the Buddha, October 27 to November 10, 2017 with John Guy Discover India’s spiritual traditions, including major Buddhist sites. Watch a Hindu ceremony in Varanasi, view the forest stupa where the Buddha first divulged the path to enlightenment, and admire Aurangabad’s cave sanctuaries, some carved by Jains. • Buenos Aires & Beyond, November 27 to December 6, 2017 with Jeff Rosenheim Celebrate spring in South America with four days in Argentina’s French-inflected capital and three days in Mendoza, heart of the wine region. Meet local artists, collectors, and winemakers; savor grass-fed beef and earthy Malbecs; and cruise the Paraná River Delta. Next February, experience Venice during Carnevale on a new program that includes a mask-making workshop and exclusive visits to costume ateliers. Greece, one of our favorite destinations, is on the calendar again for summer 2018, when the incomparable Sea Cloud navigates the Aegean archipelago and the Peloponnese. Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention our New Year’s trip Egypt & the Nile: A Journey Into Antiquity. Even if you have been to Egypt before, this remarkable itinerary offers the exclusive access that only decades of experience in the country can provide. As a participant in the 2016 program recently told us, “Each day was a surprise and a delight!” I hope you will join us for more surprising, delightful experiences this year and beyond. Sincerely,

Jim Friedlander President
