 few months ago, an e-mail showed up in my inbox from Cheryl Traas.  She introduced herself as the daughter of Mark Traas and thanked me for showing her pictures of the Amuay she had heard about from her father.  It was the first time that I became aware that all this Amuay stuff might mean something to people other than those of us who were actually there.  Others since have reinforced this concept.

Cheryl has stayed in touch, and she placed me in contact with Mark.  The Traas family is now living in the Netherlands.  Mark had a good copy of the 1962 - 1963 Orquidea and sent it to me so I could share it with all of you.  Many thanks to Mark & Cheryl for making the Orquidea now available on this site!

Mark went to Amuay in December of 1999 and visited Simon Bolivar school with Ramon Perez and Eduardo Gonzalez.  In the picture at the right, they are sitting on the flower box where I took pictures of my friends  (maybe some of you reading this) 40 years ago.  If you enjoy the images below, the next time you enjoy a glass of wine, drink a toast to Mark & Cheryl.
