This weekend I will think a lot about you all and hope that you have a really good time! Wish I was there (but covid puts a stop to travel to the US now anyway). Dave the detective let me know about the reunion…                                                                                      

The year with you and Ballard high school made a big impact on me, 16 years old, a new world a loong way from home. Thank you all! Back to Sweden I went to university, travelled quite a lot, helped start a new “travelling school” which we initiated by travelling through the Sahara desert in two old Volvo buses down to Ghana (long story..). I started working, social work in the city of Göteborg (Gothenburg). Met my husband, a keen windsurfer and Volvo trucks engineer. We had a son, and he has given us two lovely grandchildren. Now, after many years of tough work I’m an ”old age pensioner” going to learn to play the saxophone (maybe)…and looking forward to read about you!!!                                                             

Here are some pictures now, of me, my husband and our house/garden, son and two grandchildren.
