July 13, 2014, Sunday afternoon -- Reading Tom Clancy

Next to a duck pond (in Brussels, where I'm on vacation)
He's keeping track of the ducklings (there are 5) and reading Dette d'honneur 2, by Tom Clancy. He picked it up because he wanted to learn more about the war. His favorite books are policers.  It doesn't matter who the author is.
 When we said goodbye he shook my hand and, as is the style here (he's from Belgium), kissed both of my cheeks.  It felt like, in the span of 5 minutes, we'd become friends.
