  1. Hi Camilla, I’ve started following your blog I’m enjoying looking at your work but also because we are strangely related. Your paternal grandfather and my mother were first cousins, if that makes sense!

    1. Hi Juliet,
      I also am enjoying your blog. Thanks for getting in touch! It would be great to meet you when I’m eventually back home or if you fancy traveling to the americas any time soon.
      Best, and I will be keeping an eye on your posts.
