First of all, I would like to thank the many people who sent me their best wishes following the death of my father last week. As you can imagine it has been a difficult time for me, we have been separated from another since I traveled over to Germany to study and the only ‘meetings’ we’ve had have been through mail contact, which is difficult enough as it is.
We managed to get to Baltimore without any difficulty, flying through Paris and then on to Dulles where we were collected and brought to Baltimore and had a chance to rest after our long flight, even though it was only mid-afternoon in the States. Most of the legal and administrative work – there is a lot of paperwork to be sorted out for his estate – is now nearing completion and, since all the hard work has been done by an attorney, we have had it fairly easy with some time to get out into the city and clear our heads. The loss of a loved one is not something that can easily be overcome, and I am often distracted or have my thoughts elsewhere. Having someone by your side helps more than I can say, as I am sure many other already appreciate.
The way things are going we will probably fly back at the end of the week, if none of the airlines happen to have a strike, and then life continues. By then I will probably have visited all the museums here, walked all the streets, sampled every single bench around the Inner Harbor looking at the view.
I apologize in advance if I haven’t been in touch with anyone, I don’t have my passwords for mail accounts with me and wasn’t sure whether I would even be able to access this account to post an update or not. I will answer everyone as soon as I get back, update my Google Plus and Twitter accounts and generally do all those things which, when I was in Germany, seemed to work without a break, without any stress.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
