We are piecing our lives back together in the wake of the aftermath. I anticipated the island to be totally destroyed, but thankfully the damage is minimal. We are rebuilding some of the housing that was flooded and of course the ferris wheel is in need of an overhaul. Petropolis Ludwigshafen was virtually untouched. It’s as if nothing has happened. I’m confident this will take minimal time, money and effort. Tourism will be in full swing in no time and the triplets are growing faster everyday. Ivana is the leader of the three. S-he is making the most progress. The other day while walking past Ivan’s hut s-he got excited and started to say “gampa, gampa”. I couldn’t help but cry. I feel so guilty that we couldn’t find him before the evacuation. I miss him terribly….stay tuned!
