From the South Bay surf to the Southern African safari, Michael Brooke and his family have made the world their playground. As a foreign service officer for the past six years, they’ve amassed quite a family photo album collection, living in Zimbabwe, Ecuador and Nicaragua.
His firstborn was three weeks old when his invitation to join the foreign service arrived. Soon after, they moved from El Segundo to Zimbabwe. The second was born in Zimbabwe and the third in Ecuador. The children’s world is bilingual and multicultural, filled with trips to interesting parks, remote villages and big foreign cities.
