Sorry, I didn't read the previous three comments. I said yes to the fact that a new year has come.
happy new year!
Happy midsummer 1207
I just learned that my uncle has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So what's new year's eve anyway, but a bunch of ribbons with glow...
My uncle just died this morning. Luckily (if not by fate) I had the chance to visit him 2 days ago and say goodbye. I live in germany, and he in venezuela (~8400km distance). I had booked some flights for today with TAP Air Portugal, to fly to Venezuela via Portugal. Now mind this: The flight from Frankfurt to Portugal was operated by Lufthansa, and Lufthansa's pilots went on a strike starting this monday, so my flight was cancelled. Thanks to that strike, I had to change the flights and found one that departed last sunday.
Thanks to that strike I was able to say goodbye. Otherwise I'd have come just in time to witness the burial.
Let's call it fate. Or a miracle, like Defiance said. This would be the first time that I'm confronted with the death of a family member, it sure is a weird situation.
Just wanted to talk about it.
