2nd of August: Emanuelle and family
This afternoon I found a more pleasant place to have lunch and rest than yesterday: a beautiful lawn with a picnic bench in the shade of a tree, and the trunk of that tree was just angled enough to be used as a back support after lunch.
When I was getting ready to leave, an Islamic family with five children had settled under the next tree.
Suddenly Emanuelle came to me with a fresh bottle of water and all kinds of goodies from their picnic bag. My water supply was still large enough, but I really enjoyed a fresh mini cornetto ice cream.
Emanuelle‘s family has lived in Menen for 12 years. They speak French, Arabic and Dutch, and the eldest daughter even knows five languages, including Latin.
