Update on yesterday’s post

“Friendship is born at the moment when one man says to another 
“What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C S Lewis

Firstly, apologies – I didn’t give you the link to the earlier post on Africa. If you read it through you will see what I missed. – Related articles – Musings from Africa.

While I was able to open the post in the morning, I sent a comment to the blogger – 
Many years later looking back on some of my earlier posts , I came across yours. In rereading, it is more attractive to me, but I think you have to be born there to appreciate its beauty, both in the people and the beauty that surrounds everyone. Are you still blogging? I can’t find anything from you for the last few years. I hope if you are no longer blogging it is because you found something else to do. With best wishes from far away New Zealand

Imagine my delight to receive a response this morning – 
Dear Judith, thanks for your kind words. I have indeed stopped blogging in English as it is my second language.
I have continued, with some periods of inactivity, to blog in Afrikaans (my first love). If you still read Afrikaans, even after years in NZ (as are some of my closest friends), my Afrikaans musings (and fiction) can be found at https://wordpress.com/posts/julioagrella.wordpress.com

I have yet to respond and tell her that I don’t speak Afrikaans.

Until tomorrow.

  1. Yes and another curiosity satisfied. She now blogs under the name Julio in tribute to her Portuguese grandfather, rather than Eliza as in the past
