    … come now ?? Oh yes I will !!!! Friday at last I will be back in my beloved Antigua and I’ve been counting down the days till my departure for weeks now !! I’ve got plenty of little friends waiting for my arrival, since I promised them lot’s of presents from Germany ;o) !! The smiles and joy you get in return makes it sooo worth carrying all this luggage. ( Some told me I’m crazy to bring so much stuff, but they simply can’t understand the joy it brings to see those kids happy… ) … just two more days and I’m HOME :o) !!!
