Hey Nick,

Update from home. Your younger brother Gabriel arrived Sunday evening to the house and enjoyed a vegetable lasagna with your mother and myself in attendance.
It’s great to have him back for a few weeks. Wish you were here as well. Christian will drive the black car back from Northampton around the 20th and perhaps spend a week or two
in RF.
Your trip sounds incredible and i am very happy you like one of my favorite places on earth, NZ!!!
In a few days i will send you more contact details of old friends in Auckland in case you want to connect or seek a temporary safe harbor once of the brigantine.
PS Uncle Rob enjoyed reading the blogs.

Love you,
