    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

Bounce Lake 2 (Updated)

Kiowa sent me  a disc of  his own pictures so that I have been able to fill in some gaps in the narrative and start drafting the last in the series of posts of our Bounce Lake trip.

Recovering wilderness. The greater part of the wilderness we are flying over was logged out over the last six or seven years but is now recovering. Vast areas still, are bare ground or serried rows of seedlings.
