Doreen and I spent a week in London and were happy to see some old
friends and relatives again.
We enjoyed meerting and having lunch at TPT our
favourite Chinese Restaurant with long-time friend Shirley Poluck
We visited Bletchley Park where, during the
war, Alan Turing and others developed the codebreaking machine, the
Bombe, to break the German codes generated by their Enigma machine. The
move The Imitation Game
based on this.
It was a fascinating and worthwhile visit.
In front of a full-size model of the Bombe
We had dinner with Marianna and Bill Pencharz in
a Polish Restaurant
they used to frequent many years ago, and we all enjoyed the
Bill was President of the European Bridge Leauge when Eitan restarted
his bridge career some 20 years ago. Doreen and Marianna became
very friendly and traveled to Timbuktu together
We have remained good
friends for a long time.
Frankie was one of Doreen's best friends before
any of us were married,
and when Frankie married Eitan's cousin, Vivian Klaff, that only
cemented the friendship. (see Vivian's
.). We were also
friendly with Dave Rothschild before any of us were married , and when
Dave and Frankie married a few years ago the close friendship between
the four of us just came naturally.
