I know. I just wrote two newsletters, one about the Spring of 2017, mainly about Friesland and the other about my trip to Cambodia. But recently things have happened that I would like to share with you.
It was a trip to France, a ten day trip, by car.
A trip for many reasons. First of all Joke and Franklin had been here in Exmorra, looking through my grocery stores where they had selected a nice variety of interesting items from the supply that is still filling my attic. And because Joke and Franklin run a wonderful borocante called “Renaissance’ in Quillan and have many Dutch and English customers, some of these goods were in high demand.
Also in great demand was the Van Nelle Zware Shag for Axel. Considerably cheaper in Luxembourg as anywhere else.
And the new booksshop in Rennes-le-Chateau, run by Helene, had asked Joke several times for more of my books. They are selling well in her shop to mainly Dutch, Belgian, English and American customers.
So I had a full load to carry to France.
And apart from that I wanted to visit some special places on the way to France and on the way back and to meet old friends and also to see for myself what crazy things had happened in the church in Rennes-le-Chateau.
And finally Door would come over for a few days. She was to drive back with me to the Netherlands and show me where she had been working in Vittel.
Incredible how much can be seen, how much can be done and how much can happen in just a few days. You’ll see!
