Longing back

A couple of months ago Tine and I met with Willem van Ravenstein, author of the book “All Australians Now”. Van Ravenstein migrated from The Netherlands to Western Australia in 1950. In his book he describes the difficulties he experienced when, under the scorching hot Western Australian sun, he changed from a child to a teenager, while at the same time he had to change from one culture to another and from one language to another. I wrote a blog about it. You can read it here.
