Wednesday January 2nd. Meet “Blanda”

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

This is my new friend for the next three weeks. She is a ten year old Chuvach. My friends found her in Slovakia. “Blanda” is Malay for “White”. I’ll be house sitting and looking after “Blanda” while my friends Arthur and Marjan are on vacation in South Africa.


I arrived here in Soest today from Amersfoort where I have been since Friday, last year with my 86 year old cousin. I do not mind growing old but I pray I’ll be spared acting old. No pictures to proof it this time but I went to mass at Saint Henricus church. Father Tuan, born in Vietnam, said mass. I keep running into a lot more work than I had expected in formulating my English manuscript for print ready presentation, but it has been a good learning process and I expect that it will be a lot easier with the next project that is starting to form in my head.
