News from Hans

I was on the phone with Hans just a few minutes ago. He has no internet connection at home and he is going crazy, literally :-) He said that he has read some books about Turkey and Istanbul these last days (good for him) and has learned a lot. He also said that he decided to learn Turkish (very good for him). He is very worried because he cannot answer any e-mails, nor can write on his blog. When I suggested him to go to an internet cafe he refused it, showing his age (?) as an excuse. And he asked me to write a few lines. Since I have been at home with a sick baby on and off these last three weeks I told him that all I could write right now was a recipe, and guess what: he doesn't want to see any recipes on his blog...

Well friends, I think we should all pray that he gets his internet connection back fast enough.. Otherwise both you and I will suffer.. You, because there won't be anything interesting here to read about, and I, because he will be calling me everyday and begging me to write something, anything!

Too old to go to an internet cafe?! You can't be that old, Hans.

I hope you get the internet back soon. I was wondering why you only made that short post yesterday

Right on bertus! ;-)

sincerae, I am guessing that this was a trick he played on me just to make me write something ;-) I bet he is there hiding in a corner watching us ;-) And yes, he says he is too old to go to an internet cafe... Strange this Dutch guy ;-)

Maybe we should dig up what they used to do in the 'old' days. They actually picked up the phone and called people.

And for those who are older, they use to write letters and use the postal service. Is PTT still around??

Maybe we should all pitch in and help him pay his internet connection bill . . .
