Irish hands


I spent just over two months during the restrictions/lockdown at a former colleague and travel companion's house here in Belgrade. She's only 3 bus stops away, but the location is a different world from smack downtown where I live: greenery, a garden, calm (even when we're not under lockdown), and the park I showed you yesterday is nearby.

She is  88 years old, very spry, has stories to entertain you for days, loves to garden, travel (when possible!), is a killer Scrabble player, and has a book on just about every subject.  Shes Irish and has lived in "Yugoslavia" since 1958!

She and I traveled to India together twice in the same year about 6 years ago.

Her she is, mindfully chopping onions...

She sounds like an interesting person and nice to have for a friend.

A terrific shot.

COVER UP!

Not sure this lady is wearing gloves, but she has covered up her face...completely. A friend sent me this photo taken in a bus...thanks...
