Guys, I'll be on holiday from tomorrow on and I hope to be able to post throughout the holidays. But considering that I am stupid and technically inept, it might very well be that I won't be able to get my phone to work abroad :). So that is the reason if you don't hear from me for two weeks.


Venice, July, 28th 2017

Dear Orlando,

I found this wonderful historical postcard on a flea market in Venice. I am sure you appreciate that I am recycling and writing atop the original message that was fairly unreadable anyway. From what Cate and I gathered it was a love note from 1976, and we both found that very poetic since that was the year in which you were conceived. As for Venice, I am positive you would absolutely LOVE it here. It is filled with tourists and particularly newly weds and it reeks of fish something fierce. Historical fun fact about Venice: In the 14th to 16th century they had no less that 26 outbreaks of the plague here. Cate also insists that I write that there is excellent Venetian wine here, but hat this is not a historical fact. So, I reckon the current count must be 4237 to 4334? My lead is growing.
Sean and Cate

All the things Orlando enjoys in one place, it's as if Venice is tailored to his taste: newly weds and tourists in great quantities, fish, people singing love songs... it's a shame he couldn't come. Sean surely misses him and Cate would have had time to weasel out details about him and Richard out of him (or would've died trying) ;) Love those postcards!

Orlando wants Sean to know that he is rolling his eyes now and its not wise to poke a sleeping tiger.
