[QUOTE=TOM;1089506]Thanks for the advise . So what are you doing down this neck of the woods ? certainly a nice place to chill out for a while. Whats with that catamaran who owns it ?[/
We just emigrated because we were sick of the Netherlands
Too busy, too many rules, too many people. So we sold out steel
30 footer, and with that money
we emigrated to Suriname. We are living here for almost eight years now, but it's time to leave again. The world is too big to stay at one place.
Actually I'm (we) doing nothing "here". I translate chistian books
for several publishers in the Netherlands
and my wife is doing a study psychology. Next year our youngest child is going back to the Netherlands for study, and then it's the two of us again. Time for new things. But it's still very nice were we live. We are living just three kilometers from the Suriname River, at the other side of where Paramaribo is. In the middle of lots of green, growing stuff.
About the cat. They told us (I think 7 years ago) that it was stolen in South Africa
and sailed to Suriname by a couple. They left it there, on one of the moorings of the Dutch fishermen, and after a while it started to sink because of leaking seals
of the sail drives, and they pulled the cat out of the water
. There was some trial over the cat, about the ownership
of it. The Dutch wanted to see cash for the long period of mooring
and the haul out
, but nobody wanted to pay and all. I don't know what it going on now, because I haven't spoken to the fishermen for a long time.
