Edouardo lives in Paris, where he works for Lufthansa Airlines. He had found the blog whilst browsing the internet and sent us a mail telling us that he was born in Olvera, his parents still live here, and how pleased he was to see pictures of the town and also of familiar faces and places.
We wrote back, hoping to meet up when he was next back in Olvera.
Quite unexpectedly, at Alan's birthday bash last night, Edouardo introduced himself to us.
As always, it's great to meet up with anyone that takes an interest in the blog and it was lovely to spend the evening chatting about his family, work and travels.
It also turned out that he was a long standing friend of our neighbours Paco and Maricarmen and also a cousin to a spanish friend of ours, Loli, who attends the english language course at the Centro Adultos in Olvera.
It is indeed a small world!!.
Edouardo is pictured here with Maricarmen and Paco.
Through this blog, we have met and made friends with some lovely people and Edouardo is no exception. We hope to meet up again before he returns to Paris in a few days.
