After a long venture through the immigration, we finally exited the airport to Alex (Catherine's brother) and his girlfriend, Erika, waiting; waiting a long time..
Of course meeting one of the Michels was curious enough but still to meet THE one, Catherine's mom :) so much spoken of..the most conversations we had were of how was i to greet her. Mrs. Michel or simply hi, or nice to meet you..etc. i went berserk making up something and understanding why so much hype to greet someone and why the emphasise on it :)
well, anyway, Alex and his iphone in his car, took us to Tania's place, their cousin, where Catherine's parents waited patiently. i say that because we were delayed loads at the airport :( Thai food take-out was for dinner. It was nice meeting Catherine's dad; a handshake simply.
You see, i do not want to elaborate Catherine and her relation with her sweet mom (i can say that now, as i have met her ;) in this forum. But, their meeting was good; a little emotional but healthy for them both i.e. tears. i stood behind uncomfortable waiting for some attention to get on with the so hyped moment of greetings :) It occured at that moment, which was a long pending thing for Catherine, she had to go to the rest room; which she declared loud and clear. She made her way away; leaving her mom and me in front of each other. A hug was the so hyped meeting; touching it was!
Where was Catherine? not a word, not a sign, not a presentation, not even a look! Well, that is it. I have met the Michels :)
i want Catherine to read what i have written so i will stop here :)
