I am English by birth, Swiss by marriage, quite a bit African in my heart after spending a lot of my childhood there & then working 15 years there with a Bible Translation & Language development organization. I loved our life, work & friends there. We then came back to Switzerland for family reasons, and after 18 years here, had the amazing feeling that I belong! I still have a slight accent wherever I am, but there you go! I have four children and four grandchildren, so far! They are wonderful, & normal! I love my two countries, swimming, tennis, reading, & WRITING, photography & so many things I'll just stop there.
