The Netherlands, July 2017
Dear friends and acquaintances.
Once again, we are at the beginning of July, and I want to inform you on some pressing current matters.
Namely, I am writing this letter from the Netherlands this time – I have been here now for several months, in fact.
Moergestel, July 2016
Dear family and friends,
Yes, this time my letter is from the Netherlands! I am home for a few months to get away for a while from the busy life in Cochabamba! Until now I have been occupied a lot with the cataract surgeries on both my eyes. The surgeries are behind me, and now I just have to wait until I have my new glasses….. I can now, without glasses, see a lot more than before, but reading is still a problem. Of course, there are also many things to enjoy over here, and I am doing so with all my heart!!
This time we send you an account of the visit we have made to Bolivia. We, that is to say: Ton van Iersel, one of Theo’s sisters, and Dirk van Iersel, one of his nephews. We were away for twelve days, which means that we spent ten days in Cochabamba with Theo.
It was quite an experience and we can look back on it with great pleasure. Wonderful and impressive experiences.
