What a lovely afternoon I had today. My grandson has brought several German exchange students to our place for a "German coffee party" and we have so enjoyed seeing these bright young people handling being in a different country, going in school and excelling at it.
Most of them have gone home but one of the young ladies stayed here until her Mother and sister arrived for a visit. I had them for tea and coffee today and was astounded to learn that this young gal lost her father just shortly before she came here. How brave of them both..she had to leave her mother at a difficult time and the mother had to let her go on this journey alone.
I was so happy to drive them around our beautiful area and let them see things the regular tourists never get to see. They loved everything on our beautiful island.
People are so wonderful...I drove to the top of a particularly beautiful lookout when the lady who lived in one of the most gorgeous homes came out and invited us to take pictures from her balcony. This act of kindness made their visit that more exciting.
People are good. People are brave.
