Languages come up. Just as Baby Steps in Japanese had Indonesian and French subtitles, yesterday another Youtube clip had Spanish subtitles, even though it’s in English. Rick Beato’s music channel. So you make use of the opportunity.

I took along a pile of Dutch books for my mother to choose from. Her response was to share them with a Dutch friend. Well, why not? What goes around, comes around. That friend used to babysit me, my brother and sisters. She introduced me to Siddhartha which now I own both the English and Dutch translations. Herman Hesse wrote it in German.
