I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think – Mevlana Rumi
Esref Erdoğan, walks into the tea house, where I are already was invited in by the Owner Hassan Hussein to have some tea. Esref (83) has been working in Amsterdam for 4 years in the past. But he lost all his Dutch language. But nevertheless wants to to talk with me, he has a little note book where he explains some things to me by writing some words or numbers. He was working at a sewing-atelier, with only ladies… or sewing only lady-clothes. Another little uncertainty is about the money. I assume he gets 106 euro as pension. I hope for him it is per month. He was interested to pick a card. He found it difficult to read it, bu maybe my handwriting didn’t help. After I did some shopping I saw he shared his card with fellow visitors of the tea house and he let me know it is a good quote from Rumi.
