In 2007 I did a cycletrip in France with one of my cyclebuddies , Ivan . We met some of his best friends to have a canoe trip together. I immediately felt home in this group of friends, which lead to a second canoe trip with them in 2008. Since then we didn’t see eachother again, but try to keep in touch somehow.

Last week my cyclefriend had his 50th birthday and his friends decided to organize a surprise gathering, where I was invited too. It was good to meet again and even to meet some other friends of Ivan, we had a nice evening with lots of laughter.

The theme of Ivan’s birthday present was CUBA , which inspired me for painting this birthday card  for him. He seamed rather pleased with it. 🙂
