|Braai with Laurentia and Robert|
Robert fetched me at the airport. His heavy Afrikaans accent in English takes me some time to get accustomed to. His first wife passed away, and he's now been married to Laurentia for 4 or 5 years.
Robert works for a geologist study. They are looking for whatever the earth can give them, be it platinum, gold, diamonds and so on.
Laurentia and Bruce (and Laurentia's brother Arnold) live in a quiet suburb called Norkem.
Laurentia would love to travel to Europe and other places. She's been to New York so far (maybe to some other places too, but I can't remember). She likes getting to know new cultures and enjoys watching a nice scenery. She seems awed by the Alps that run across several countries in Europe. I showed her my pictures of different hikes i took in different parts of the Alps in Switzerland, showed her pictures of France, landscapes and ancient towns and cities. She loves the old architecture and the general aspect of towns and cities in Europe.
