Service from a home for the retired

Service to the people with handicaps

Maybe you remember the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Roskilde Garden. Peoplpe at the photo are waiting for all the participating guards to come and play together. Suddenly the 3-wheeler was arriving. At the rear you could read it was from a rest home in Roskilde. Practical and fine service to peolpe who can't transport themselves.

Leif from Eagan Daily Photo in Roskilde

Leif and Jørgen

Do you know Leif Hagen from Eagan Daily Photo Blog?

Early this year he told me about visiting relatives in Norway and Sweden this summer. After the long vacation he and his family would fly to Copenhagen and stay in Denmark for 24 hours before returning home. Would I like to meet? Of course.

One of the followers of this blog is Kristen. She lives with her family in Roskilde, but is from Hawaii. She and Leif knows each other, participating in the same French-class, but havn't met since 22 years ago. The Hagen family stayed at her house - and I enjoyed beeing a guest an hour.

It was an intense hour and very energy-giving to be there talking about our blogs and other interesting subjects. A few photos was taken - and one of them is above.

I hope the stay in Roskilde was enjoyed, that the travel back was relaxing and returning to work isn't too stressfull.
