Katmandu living

the van de Wiel/Schou Hansen family blog





After Christmas and New Year in Europe we are now back in Yemen again. We have of course returned with a lot of pictures but I have unfortunately left them at home, so you will have to live with this one picture of me in full swing at work – it was made for our newsletter. So you will have to wait until after the weekend before you can view pictures of the kids from our holiday in Europe. Here in Yemen we are slowly getting used to the life again – the crazy traffic, the always present qat chewing men and the 4 o’clock morning prayer. It has been a bit of a tough transition for the kids – it took them a while to get used to getting up in the morning after sleeping late all the time they were in Europe. We are enjoying to be back in the sun again. Though Yemen has become quite cold, with night temperatures in the house down to 8c and outside down to 2c, the middle of the days are still quite pleasant with temperatures reaching 20c.

It was very nice to be back to Europe for Christmas. Lieke and the kids already went in the middle of December and therefore had much time with Oma and Opa before we drove up to Denmark just after Christmas. Though we again had a much too tight schedule we managed to see all our family and many of our friends; spending Christmas in Vlijmen and New Years in Skødstrup.

Back in Yemen we have returned to work again. Lieke has had a bit of a tough start with both a bad cold and at the same time a heavy workload with all the budgeting for the new year.

I will try to remember to bring some photos one these days so we again can get this blog moving

    Hej Henrik og Lieke

    Google Earth rules....

    Desværre er der dårlig opløsning på Egå, så det bliver lidt gnidret hvis vi skal kigge på vores egen baggård. Alt vel i Egå. Vi har inddraget en del af underetagen, således at vi har udvidet med små 60 m2. Så skulle der nok blive plads til en voksen-afdeling :-) Særdeles tiltrængt, skulle jeg hilse og sige. Turi er fastansat ved laborantskolen i Viby og er glad for det, og jeg selv er post.doc ved psykiatrisk hospital. Det betyder i realiteten at jeg lever på kortvarige ansættelser. Så længe båden sejler.... Jeg har taget et patent på en ny slags antidepressiva, så skal der komme bedre økonomi i min ansættelser så kommer det nok derfra.
    Jeg vil gerne sende lidt billeder og sådan, men giv mig lige en mailhilsen på henrik_amtoft@hotmail.com så har jeg et par gigabyte familiebilleder til videredistribution.

    mvh Henrik og Turi
    og også hilsen fra Michael og susanne

    ps den globale opvarmning slår igennem herhjemme (måske) idet der ikke har været skyggen af vinter. Det er nærmest sådan permanent efterår.
