Editing in Amsterdam

Welcome to my blog.
I hope I am forgiven for practically not communicating for the past 8 years, but, as some of you know, I live in the bush in Mozambique in a small village on the edge of the Indian Ocean where, until recently, we had no internet or post. Now, however, Mossuril has leapt into the 21st century and we have a wireless internet connection: so I'm back.

My thanks go to Alex Macbeth for dragging me personally up to date by means of this blog which he gave me for my birthday. Now all I have to do is work out how it works and then I shall be flooding it with thoughts and fiction.

Actually, I'm back in Europe for a few weeks now, editing my new books (note the plural!).  I have just spent many months editing 'Kafka Lodge', my new novel, and now I am editing 'The Promised Land' (short stories).

Last night I had some great news, Otto, my  dearest and oldest friend is heading out to Mozambique with a view to our spending our dotage together by the beach. The only thing holding him back is the need for a good medical insurance - so I'm searching one out. If anyone has a suggestion for an affordable insurance for a 78 year old Venezuelan man (with a chequered past) valid in Mozambique, please let me know.
