Dutch visitor!

This Sunday, Sasja arrives. She found and contacted me around Dec as she is doing her thesis on hurricanes and we had been hit by Ike of course. So we have been emailing and getting people together to talk about what happened. And now the time is here! It'll be a full house with both Betsy and Sasja but we are really looking forward to it! We will try to do as much as possible so she gets the most out of her Texas experience!

Other than that we are going on the Artwalk in downtown here, where we live. There has not been one since Ike so everybody is excited! Free wine while looking at art!

The 2009 ArtWalk dates kick off with: April 18.
For over 19 years the Galveston Arts Center has produced ArtWalk on Saturday nights in the heart of the historic district. Now spreading to other parts of the island, ArtWalk occurs approximately every six weeks. Not a street festival, ArtWalk takes place in existing commercial galleries, non-profit arts spaces and what are called "other walls," restaurants and retail stores, for example. Each exhibits art and welcomes viewers with open doors, later hours and refreshments. One of the Galveston Arts Center's largest programs, ArtWalk, promotes visual art and artists, offers alternative places to see and learn about art and hopes to bring newcomers, as well as welcome return visitors to the art community on the island.

Thats it for now!
