    Meet the Wrights

    Meet the Wrights
        I have met the head of the Wright family, Mr. David Wright, on the Internet. I saw him the way you see him now (see the picture in the right top corner). We corresponded for a while and then met in Venice, Italy, two years ago. Ever since we have corresponded regularly.

        Last year I happened to visit Great Britain. I was there with a group of students in Gloucester University, Cheltenham (the place where the famous "Harry Potter" film was shot). The students were there through the Study Group Educational Programme. Of course, I took advantage of the situation to visit my friend in Runcorn, Cheshire, where he lives.

        Cheshire is a wonderful county and I think we'll manage to show that in the forthcoming issues. We visited Chester, too, an ancient Roman town with a long history, met with my friend David's friends.

        Cheltenham is rather far from Runcorn and David Jr (my friend's son) took me from Cheltenham to Runcorn in his car. It took us nearly 4 hours ( a long trip by British standards).

    Mr David Wright, M.Sc*., graduated from Nottingham University in Mechanical Engineering in 1961. Worked for the Shell and Glaxo Groups of companies for many years, now retired and living in Runcorn, Cheshire. He speaks English, Dutch and Thai.
    Mr Wright kindly agreed to answer our readers’ questions.

    * Master of Science
        That's how I met David Jr (junior). David Jr and his family, which is in the picture above, live in Abergavenny in South Wales in their own house. The family consists of 6 people: David, his wife Rachel and his 4 children. The eldest is Emily (Emmy) - nearly 12, then, in order: Eleanor (Ellie) - nearly 10, Max - 4 yrs and Milena (Millie, or Milly) - just two.

        Rachel is a lawyer (a graduate of London university) and commutes to Bristol almost every day. David, a graduate of the biology department of the same university takes care of his children and is making repairs to his house now. It's a middle class British family, but I am not sure it's a typical one. It's just the way it is.

        David likes to do everything with his own hands and I hope we can ask him to tell our readers about their house and the place where they live. And I hope that the children will tell us about their schools.
