Hi Val, No I can't make it to Paris for two reasons, I'm pretty broke right now (in sympathy with the rest of Europe) and I'm sick, age related loss of balance which with the drugs the doctors gave me means it's difficult to walk and impossible to ride my bike. Shit happens, I hope to recover quickly but am now just taking it easy. Have a great fest in Paris, give a hug to everyone from me.
hello, Val! im happy it reached you =)) i am learning Japanese that's where i found my interest in etegami and the card you got is called etegami which means picture letter. It is one of the traditions in Japan - people draw and send cards to each other within the families and to friends. See you in mail again!
Un-we are loving Paris. We even love Bilbao which we got back from on Saturday.
dos-chuck did get mail from you (I did, also, without postage and La Poste made me pay for postage and a tax!! Wow, you're an expensive date. Drei -Saturday for the Musee de La Poste, and What the heck is Audi or Suzi referring to? You are so cryptic (oh no, that's Carla not you.) See you soon? m & c
Thank you for the card! I enjoyed all of the collected items. How are you coming by things from the Mermaid Theater of Nova Scotia? Traveling Act? I'm a fan of Eric Carle, as is my son (who's 2). We have a CD of Carle reading - very interesting voice.
At that time the pound was very cheap for Dutch people and my husband and I booked a flight to Middlesbrough to cycle in the Northern part of England. We took our own cycles in the plane with us ( on the first row) We loved trains and the people working on them were so dedicated and nice.
