Daar…

gaan sy alweer!

Ek sit nou snot en trane en huil, want my meisiekind met die avontuurvoete is pas weer lughawe toe. Sy het nou twee weke hier gekuier van Sjina af, waar sy alreeds ‘n jaar en ‘n half woon.

Sy is altyd op reis iewers heen…het lank in Londen gebly, in Rusland, Viëtnam en nou Sjina. Dis meer as wat ‘n moederhart kan verwerk. Wanneer sy werk is ek rustig, maar wanneer sy haar reisskoene aantrek en alleen na vreemde plekke dwaal, is ek so angstig.

Ek was nou pas in haar kamer, waar daar nog ‘n duik in haar kopkussing is, waar sy vroeër gelê het. Ek ruik haar nog, die badkamervloer is nog nat van haar laaste stort en haar voetspore is op die matjie….

Reis veilig my meisiekind…

    1. Dankie Abrie. Ek gun haar dit, maar dis net asof dit al hoe moeiliker raak om afskeid te neem….seker ouderdom😔😔
      Ek is eintlik nie baie avontuurlustig nie. Manlief is en ek is baie dankbaar dat hy my altyd saamsleep na interessante plekke. Ek dink sy aard na hom.

  1. Vriendin, ek lees, my oë dof, my wange nat want my lief meisiekind ook mos vêr. Ek verlang so na haar. Wil haar teen my bors vasdruk, in haar oe kyk. Maar vir almal om my hou ek die front voor van ‘n brawe ma . Ek dink aan jou .

    1. Toe ons jonk was,was toer nie binne ons verwysingsraamwerk nie. Ons was die muishonde vd wêreld en beslis nie orals welkom nie.
      Ek gun my kind dit. Sy doen dit al die afgelope tien jaar en het meer beleef as haar “boring” ma in ‘n leeftyd!

  2. Loslaten valt beslist niet mee, maar wat een energie als je dit allemaal mag en kan doen dus ook van mij een hele goed en veilige reis gewenst.
    En voor jou sterkte en probeer niet te piekeren want op deze leeftijd lopen ze niet meer in zeven sloten tegelijk 😉

  3. Ik kan je best begrijpen en met het ouder worden betert het niet maar ze komt regelmatig terug naar de thuisbasis probeer je daar aan op te trekken.Ook zijn de komunicatie middelen enorm groot geworden.Kan je haar, in enkele minuten horen en met bepaalde methodes ook zien.Dat was 25 jaar geleden onmogelijk..

    1. Ja dis heel gelukkig. My vader het in 1936 uit Rotterdam Suid-Afrika toe gekom. Die enigste kommunikasie was briewe wat tweeweekliks met die posboot hier aangekom het.Geen vliegtuie, telefone, niks! So ons kan nie kla nie.

      1. I thought it could be your daughter. The “translation” was awful. But I can relate. For one year, we had one daughter in England and the other in New York. Then they both came back. Until… that terrible day, and daughter #2 left for Asia. That’s why we all went. To see her. And bring her back. 🙂 Wanderlust is a difficult thing for others. I hope you can skype or equivalent. I know the bush is no substitute but at least it takes one’s mind away. Any plans for this week-end?

        1. The times we live in…travel, travel😄
          We are actually packing this weekend to travel to Namibia, through Botswana. It is a two day trip that we do twice a year, because we have a home in Namibia as well….when things go wrong this side…sadly looks like it’s happening.

        2. Well, good to have a home in Namibia. I always heard it was quite beautiful. 🙂 That’s always an option. (I also keep a place in Paris… just in case…) 😉
          Have a nice trip to Namibia.

        3. We travelled on the Transkalahari Highway…goes right through from Pretoria through Botswana to Windhoek in Namibia. Nice tarred road, no problems…just hundreds of animals all over.

        4. Transklahari? Wow. Reminded me one of my cousins worked forever at Much Asphalt. He may be responsible for that tar. Any complaint I will pass along. The nice thing is that the wildlife is “respected”? In Tanzania they want to build a highway across Serengeti which would cut the great annual migration to Maasaï Mara.

        5. Sounds really nice. The key factor is… people. Are they at peace? Or not? To be honest I’ve come to dislike Mexico because of its violence. Over 20,000 homicides a year goes beyond my tolerance level.
          Enjoy Swakop. Tot ziens Dina

        6. Well, GDP per capita (PPP adjusted for purchasing power) is not bad for an African country, around 10,000 dollars a year. Most African countries hover between 1,000 and 2,000 dollars…

        7. What saves this country is the fact that the population is still low. But I am telling you, I have seen for the past ten years, how it is growing. More and more shacks are shooting up around the towns and theft and crime are also increasing. Last week our house has been broken into for the third time and laptops were stolen. This is the major sports in Namibia…stealing tourists laptops and cameras.

        8. A low population is a “mechanical” way to elevate GDP per capita. And I believe you: violence is growing in Africa. And empty houses must be tempting. Sorry about the laptops. One of the reasons I don’t want a “country” or week-end house here is just that. There are very nice places an hour away, but you get burglarized every so often… 😦

        9. Luckily it wasn’t our laptops, but guests’s, who stayed here. They were negligent and did not put it in the safe and they also didn’t activate the ouside alarm. The thieves dashed inside the house after breaking a window and was in and out in two minutes with the inside alarm screaming. It can all be seen on camera!!

        10. The house is quite equipped. But you are right: in certain places, don’t tempt the thieves. Like here: don’t leave your laptop on the car seat in plain view. Tsss.
          (One of the solutions here is that most houses have bars on the first floor at least.)
