Well. Isn’t this a surprise?

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

So this was waiting for me in my Inbox when we came home from camping:


This was the email attached to it:

Hi Andrea, did you have any idea that they would
translate the [Reader’s Digest] article into spanish,
and publish it (May 2006) all across Latin America? :-)

I don’t know when the interview took place. Some
articles take months to be translated. I know because
I have bought the english edition whenever I go
(shopping) to the South of Texas with my family. Then
months later, when the spanish edition arrives home, I
find some of the articles I read months before.

Well, that’s all. Sorry for filling your inbox with
attachments of up to 1 MB, but I wanted to say hi, and
pass you something cool for your blog.

Let me know if you’re interested in a copy. I’ll send
it to you for free.

Take care,

Tomas U.
Monterrey, Mexico

FYI – the original scan of the (English) Reader’s Digest is here.

Thank you so much Tomas. You made my day. And Hello Latin America! Or should I say, hola ?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
