My visit to VinB!

While I am waiting for my visa (it has been more than 4months now!), Joe invited me for a Christmas get together in Chipping. I remember (I think it was in November) that I replied that I would be in Brazil. Well, it’s not really like that!

Christmas cake VinB style!

Margaret and Keith picked me up from Preston station and took me to their house. After a while we went to Mary’s house for a dinner. Sometimes I feel frustrated because of my long waiting, but then, other times I feel very lucky and I see the reason why I am still here. And yesterday’s dinner was one of these moments – I was so pleased to join all those lovely people and to have a chance to meet Trustees and friends of Volunteer in Brazil.

I would like to thank you for the invitation, for all the support and for making me feel like one of the family!
