Dear grandma,

She's the one in the left with the pearl necklace.
How I wish I had met you. But both of you died in 1977, 3 years before I was born. I wish I could talk to you about life, about those times and about that chocolate mousse you are famous for. The other day I was talking to my dad and he said you must have had a similar experience to mine now, being french, living in Bern and trying to learn and cope with the swiss german dialect, which I have heard sounds a lot like dutch. I wonder how that would be, to actually talk to you. All I have is some postcards my dad kept and a recipe book I rescued and copied. Still have to decipher that one. Hope you are watching us, wherever you are.


  1. Qué preciosa era tu abuela! Y qué joya ese cuaderno de recetas!
    Precioso post, yo hubiera querido conocer a mis abuelo paterno, que falleció 5 años antes que yo naciera.

  2. Gracias Marcela, si que era guapa, si es que yo misma puedo decirlo. Supongo que las cosas pasan por algo, y no entendemos...


I love your comments, let's talk .
