Meeting Columbians
How things evolved

It all started with a "Hi" email from bhelena, because she was facing her first trip abroad in an unknown country called the Netherlands to an even more unknown city called Hengelo.

I think I must have answered a dozen of emails before all travel and living details were clear.

A meeting

We agreed we had to meet, but both had busy weeks. Never mind, a bright sunny evening was picked 2 days in advance and we met downtown Hengelo at the Yam Yam restaurant.

A spicy meal

bhelena brought her husband Hector and I had Swant at my side. We made a short walking trip downtown to check another restaurant, but after seeing that it was closed we returned to Yam Yam.

We went for Turkish Lachmacun with a cucumber/apple salad and the wonderful baked patatoe chips.

Sightseeing at Hengelo

AT about 9PM we went for a sightseeing tour in Hengelo and stopped at the neighbouring Oele to see the water mill.

The conclusion

As it turned out they lived in a house nearby, we dropped them off in front.

Thanks for the great night!

My next meeting: Down South invasion at Amsterdam.
