Pourtales Park is at 10 minute bus ride from my home. Yet, our busyness kept it miles away. So one Sunday morning on a beautiful September day, we made it. What a lovely discovery!
The Park’s trails take you to places with surprises. Thanks to my kid’s previous school trip, we knwe what to look for. But it is also fun if you just walk and let the Park reveal itself. Portales: a place where nature meets art.
for the most amazing welcome, with wide open arms of people i know and worked with years ago. They still recognise Oxana-redhead-blond- redhead again :).
For my dearest friends always close by and who filled my home with the smell of home-made bread for me to take home (my other home).
The change i saw and the admiration i took with me for what brave people do, in spite of lots of adversities.
The fun of carousel meetings from eight to eight and the plea of my brain to keep going to learn more. With a deepest sense of gratitude to the best interpreters, who went above and beyond their regular duties.
Fulfilling my need to see sunrises from my window while sipping my coffee.
Witnessing my brave cleaning lady taking her faith into her hands and going into entrepreneurship. She is my hero.
The most efficient and discrete plumber who came at 10pm to fix my water hitting. It was perhaps my team members little prayer, as they risked sharing their hotel bathroom with me 😉
