Above:  The woman in the middle started speaking to Irene together with Karin Stahl, Irene’s  close friend and  travel companion.  We had a sandwich at the airport in Minneapolis, while waiting for the next flight. She asked us where we were going etc.  It turned out she had been to a book club meeting the previous year where the group read “We are going to Pick potatoes”.
