Cleaned up.



This is the least traumatic (for me) view inside my donga, taken as my colleagues and I cleaned it out today.  We did have some pleasant surprises. One of the antique clubs was retrieved, and I found my GPS and GoPro camera, though all the gear that goes with it has disappeared along with the 3 camera bags I had.

Unpleasant discoveries too. I found the box that contained my leather bound rice paper edition of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which is a valuable collectors item, but not the book.  Some of the unstolen DVDS are trampled and scuffed.

We salvaged my Kenwood Chef mixer, food processor and some of my pots and pans, and even a few of my kitchen knives, though not my very best ones.  Even though my cutlery and crockery was mostly gone or smashed, finding these few things made the situation seem a little less bleak,

Everyone kept asking me if I was OK, and I insisted I was, but as we drove away I realised my jaw ached, and I had been grinding my teeth the whole time we were there.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

  1. So, some good news among the mass of bad.
    There is an old response the stealing of knives, but I’m fairly sure you would not approve.
    Makes me wish I believed in karma.

  2. The Rice Paper Edition is probably irreplaceable but I can try our local, and very good horologist with the watch if you like.
