i’ve been in KZN for a few days. I went to Durban for a conference, and took the opportunity to visit some family members. I saw Arthur and Dorothy Benjamin in Northdene. Dorothy is Val’s cousin on the Greene side, and their son Todd was there with his wife Pamela, preparing to emigrate to Australia, and daughter Jessica. Arthur has been bitten by the family history bug, and is trying to trace the Benjamin family that goes back to St Helena.
I’m typing this in my cousin Jenny Aitchison’s house in Pietermaritzburg. Jenny is overseas at the moment, but her husband John was a university friend, so we’ve been catching up after not seeing each other fro several years. I’m alos typing this on John’s computer, which has a strange keyboard and Windows Vista, which seems to do strange things to the text, so I’ll write more when I get home.
