NOTE FROM THE COOK FOR HIS FATHER
Hi Super Dad of mine, too long time i don’t speak to you.
I am very well, I work a lot but the ocean gives me back a lot of energy therefore I can focus. I had a hectic time in Republica Dominicana, I had to deal with the craziness of the ‘System’ that rules the Custom over there, all in Spanish. It was a fun and in some situations really surreal and adrenalinic experience. I am sorry I couldn’t call you from over there, my phone wouldn’t find any coverage….please tell the ladies from the Post Office they could work out an agreement with the Dominican phone companies. I will be able to call you from Azores so be patient. I am a little tired but as you always say ‘hard games are for hard people’. I miss you and the rest of the tribe, I hope this lines of mine find you in shape and roaring as usual. Today I prepared cous-cous for lunch so i could find this little time to drop you a line.
It’s weird to think that we are on the way back, it all seems like it started yesterday.
Love you, talk soon.
