Trip Update |
I just updated the Anneka's Travels page ... she's now an infant with a passport like a Cold War-era spy. She's taken a high-speed train through the Chunnel, eaten mussels and charmed a bunch of Europeans. She's also met many of my German relatives, but also my French high school friend who lives in London ... and his parents, too. One of my favorite moments so far was when a Eurostar security person with the most Charles Dickens Cockney accent ever called her a ''sweet li'l chicken.'' And there was the retired midwife with an outrageous Scottish brogue who talked to me for 15 minutes about what a cute little girl I have (I understood about a third of it). It's been fun!
