Dear Claudia:

Very nice story!

Or, as Tennessee Williams (American Playwright) might say, "We all depend on the kindness of strangers."

Or words to that effect. (If anyone has the exact quote, I'd appreciate it. Yes, I Googled the phrase, but only to wild effect and to become as lost as Claudia...lol)

Best Wishes,


Raoul Djukanovic

In A Streetcar Named Desire, the final words of Blanche DuBois were:

"I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."

Whether her fate marks the final word on her credo is open to question.

Incidentally, Claudia, did "nu va superati" feature in the dialogue at any point? Probably not, by the sounds of it, but it's a phrase that used to crack me up. Asking someone not to get angry before asking them anything else always struck me as profoundly indicative of something I could never figure out. Ah, the homesicklessness continues...

Noapte buna!
