Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year. I am looking forward to another good year, with the launch of “SoloMan” and the preparations of another adventure, with my scheduled departure for South America in August. Arjen IJff, the designer¬†www.ArjenIJff.nl , sent me the first proof of the book cover of the Dutch version:JVO-Omslag SoloMan 193x260fc

Keep an eye on the blog for the publication details. We are getting close.

I am still enjoying my visit with my Virginia family and friends. Yesterday I attended service at St. Theresa where I have made friends since I visited here in the last year since my June 2007 arrival from the West Coast via Cape of Good Hope. This is the group having breakfast at Nix after mass. This is the same restaurant I had my first American breakfast, after the first two years of the circumnavigation, upon my arrival in June 2007.

Last Saturday, Grandma Jeannine and Great Grandpa Jack took Madison and Lily Leon to the Portsmouth children Museum. A unique place where kids can play with science, art and history exhibits.

I am making a one week road trip from here on the 13th to Wilmington N.C. then on to Atlanta to visit friends.
