We were meeting my schoolfriends for lunch in Norwich. This would be a fun international gathering... guaranteed to be a laugh. Our original plan was to meet David and Spanish wife Lolita. Hola! My delight at the prospect was compounded when it turned out that The Boi Philup and his Taiwanese wife Shu Ching were over from Pennsylvania. Nǐ hǎo! ‘Good timing boi!’ I thought.
Very close friends from years gone by, it was instant “A’roit bois” all round followed by laughter and long lapses into our own lingua franca, Norfolk. Time flew. “Ut do, doon’t ut?” mused Professor Philup!
