We’re back in Melbourne from our wonderful trip.
From the first meeting till the last goodbye our hearts were (are) overflowing with love and gratitude for EVERYTHING! 

 AS I’m still struggling to put in writing what Mwe have experienced, I chose to share some photos instead. 

It was sad to say goodbye not knowing when they’ll meet again. The intention is for Kai to spend some time there when the conditions are right. Meanwhile, we maintain contact via Whatsapp.

I offered to help fix the roof with the money that’s left and am looking for a way to bring John over for a visit. Brothers are very keen.

Here’s a link to a couple of short clips. Enjoy!

Thank you all,

From Dina, John, Larissa, Luana, Amanda, Ana Biatris and Ruben And from us: Kai, Anat and Raquel
