Was vandaag op een antiek markt in Bandung. Een envelop nog gesloten, verstuurd uit japan naar bandung in Augustus 1963, envelop was nog dicht....

Open gemaakt en in vond 3 flexi discs van Radio Japan, een andere nog ongeopende envelop en een kerstkaart....

Die ongeopende envelop bevatte twee brieven in het Engels aan ene Mr. Tan Gwan Seng in Bandung....

Dit stond in die brieven:

Shimonoseki, 17 - Sept

Dear Gwan Seng

Thank you very much for sending me
such a nice birthday gift. I will keep
it for ever.
In Japan now we have the Rainy-season
I like to see film.
I have watched the televidion about
of Indonesia.
My lessons are Mathematics, Language,
Health, Science,Geography, History,
Music, Drawing, Religion, English.
I go to school mission private school
for all girls.
We have about 1800 pupils in our school.
Do you have a friend who would like
to write to a 15 year old girls here in
Toshiko Yorino asked me to see if I
could get a pen-pal and I thought
maybe you could help me out. Just
tell your friend to send the letter.

Thank you very much.

(second letter):

Miss Toshiko Yurino

Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi.

I have not started a stamp collection
but when I do yours will be my first
twenty stamps in my book.

Thanks a million for them.

Tell your family that I say hello,

Sayonara, my good friend.

En dan ga je zitten denken he.... Die geadresseerde, dat is duidelijk een Indonesier van Chinese afkomst. Zou hij de grote slachtpartij in '65 hebben overleefd? Chinezen waren echt flink de lul toendertijd, niemand die weet hoeveel er daarvan zijn vermoord toendertijd.....

Nou zit de straat op die envelop echt vlakbij ons guesthouse bij 't treinstation van Bandung, dat is China town daar... Ga morgen toch eens kijken.....

Overigens echt prachtige exotica muziek op 1 van die flexi's, klasieke muziek gemixed met traditionele Japanse muziek door Tamae Koh and the New Chamber Orchestra....

Heb alles op mijn blog gezet, daar kun je ook de flexi's downloaden....
