Belgium - Day 18

Carol and Gauthier 
During the summer of 1967 Carol worked in the tobacco fields of Canada for her Uncle. During that summer she became friends with a Belgian student named Gauthier who was also working the tobacco fields. They had many good times that summer and during the past 45 years they have corresponded through letters, cards and more recently email. Today, for the first time in 45 years, Carol and Gauthier were reunited. Gauthier is a great guy and spent his day showing us Belgium and that was great fun. I am leaving this post with just the two of them as it was a reunion to remember. We ended our day at Gauthier's seaside home where he and his wife Bea and their daughter Astrid gave us a wonderful supper and a great evening of reminiscing.
