Dear friends,

how are you? I hope you had a nice couple of holidays to relax and prepare for the New Year?

While in 2012, we didn’t celebrate Christmas at all, this year we visited many friends and celebrated Christmas every day for some weeks. It was probably due to the heat in Melbourne and the snow here that Christmas suddenly made sense.

The first couple of weeks here were harsh. I missed the warmth of Melbourne. The people, the cockatoos and cactuses.
During our last days in Melbourne, I was exceptionally hungry. I started eating twice or three times more than before. As if I wanted to take as much as possible with me from Australia. As if this way parts of Australia would come with me. I should make myself a T-shirt: This belly was proudly grown in Australia.
wish you well, have a happy New Year,
