Family over three continents

Greetings from Virginia Beach, VA. Currently I am visiting with Jonathan Backens and his family, after having stopped in Washington, NY and Boston. After this, on Wednesday, onwards to LA. This trip was initiated by the invitation of IEEE to present during their Humanitarian Workshop in Boston, USA. My presentation is published at http://link.net.zm/?q=node/239.

Janneke is currently in France, just finished attending the 39th Union World Conference on Lung Health of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France, from 16 to 20 October 2008. She will go onwards to visit her sisters in the UK and NL.

And Merel and Elmo are in Macha! They stay with the Krauses, and reports are that they enjoy their extended 'sleep over' at the Zisamu (Wooden) House.
