I just updated the Anneka’s Travels page … she’s now an infant with a passport like a Cold War-era spy. She’s taken a high-speed train through the Chunnel, eaten mussels and charmed a bunch of Europeans.
She’s also met many of my German relatives, but also my French high school friend who lives in London … and his parents, too.
One of my favorite moments so far was when a Eurostar security person with the most Charles Dickens Cockney accent ever called her a ”sweet li’l chicken.” And there was the retired midwife with an outrageous Scottish brogue who talked to me for 15 minutes about what a cute little girl I have (I understood about a third of it).
It’s been fun!
