En réponse à Jan van Steenbergen :

>Funny, I hadn't even thought of that!
Hehe, I personally liked it very much (and the concert was extremely nice too. I especially liked your father's piece played by your mother on the organ).
>So did I. I noticed that you are different in French. More talkative.
Am I? ;))) That's because my Dutch doesn't allow me yet to say all the things I'd like to say ;))) .
> It's >funny: Marina and I used the occasion to switch languages after almost ten >years. We speak Dutch now. She says that I am completely different in Dutch, >and that she likes me better this way ;)) .
Maybe the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis has some truth in it after all ;))))))) .
>No, I have two more free weeks. :)
Good! So no excuse not to go to Rob's party on the 30th ;))) (and I hope Marina will come too, we would be happy to see her again).
>The list will fall silent, I'm afraid...
>Really? Where are you going? To the rainforests near the Amazone? To the Gobi >Desert?
Hehe, to the Vallée de la Loire! ;))) We're going to a house in the middle of nowhere, next to the Loire itself, in Beaulieu, a very small village. The nearest "town" has 1800 inhabitants and just got a supermarket in 2001!!! ;)))) The closest big towns, Orleans and Bourges, are at 80km each :))) . I'm really going to rest there! :) (I have to, we stay there two weeks and then I go to my parents for one week. I really need the rest! ;))) )
>BTW Thank you for your nice postcard! I received it yesterday.
You're welcome! I wanted to post it earlier so that you would find it at your return, but things got a bit out of hand :(( . Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
