Hi Rita!

I'm back, and boy did I have fun, apart from the very serious historical tour my daughter (a historian in the making) had prepared for us. Belonging to the first post-war generation and having lived through the cold war, I cannot tell you how impressed and moved I am with what I've seen. The trip was way too short.

About becoming Jane, I can't say I know Anne Hathaway but she's quite beautiful and Jane wasn't according to the pictures, although I thought there's no real evidence it's her.
