I came back from Yemen with much more than a window. Marianne and I remained friends after I returned to the U.S. and she to Holland. When on a trip to Versailles, (he lived in France) she met my brother and I am happy to say that they got married a few years later and this September little Fleur, my niece turns 5.
Just because of the picture here and because when I tell the story people often think that Marianne is Yemeni, but she is not. She is Dutch and was a fellow traveler on my Yemeni journey.
