For the first time in her life, Sophia had decided to keep a diary of Hilke and her week in Turkey. They had such a wonderful time and experienced so many exciting things, that Sophia said it would be worth writing a book about it. However, this is no book, but written as a letter to her best friend Lisbeth. You might enjoy it too... I think... I hope... Well, why don't you judge for yourself? (See http://sophiaburns.com)
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
