A Morning Surprise

>> Jun 30, 2011

I received a package this morning. I read that it came from Netherland. Suddenly I can guess what’s inside. It must be a book! The book author, a kind man named Rudy E. Groenewald, sent me his book as I can’t get it here. The book is only avalaible in Netherlands.

Months ago, Rudy sent me an email and informed that he’d like to use some photos of mine in his fourth book. Of course I didn’t mind and I was glad that I can help. He needed some photos about Bogor city and luckily he found a few needed photos in my blogs.

Rudy spent his youth and boyhood in Bogor city. In mid of 1960’s, he migrated to Netherlands. After many years there, as Dutch, he went back on vacation to his native Indonesia; to his childhood place. The book title is Pulang ke Kampung Bogor (Go Back to Bogor Hometown). The book is written mostly in Netherlands language and a little bit of Indonesia and Sunda language.

I can’t tell much about his book here, as I don’t understand Netherlands language. I’ll need many times to understand the whole book, hehehe. I can only say that the book recorded his recollections on his origin. He took readers on his fascinating journey and shared his nostalgia.

Dear Rudy and wife, thanks for allowing me to have your book and thanks for mentioning my name under the photos. Wish you a success and good health!
