Hey, Penny here.
Dasha had a BIG surprise for me today. We went to her work as usual, but this time, we did not go to the second floor, but to the third floor. There we chatted for a long time with Jennifer, a nice young lady. She kept looking into another room and saying "he's on the phone, it will be awhile..." The person in the other room was talking to some senator, Dodd I think who wants to become the President of the United States. At the end this person told him "I'm sending you a big kiss" which made me chuckle. But when he came out, I was very surprised. It was Elie Wiesel! In person!
We told him all about sozlet and why I am visiting him, and he posed for a picture with us. He does not look very happy in the photo, but he was actually in a very good mood this morning. It is incredible. Elie Wiesel is 79 years old and he flew in this morning from somewhere and is flying this afternoon somewhere else to give a talk. Very busy man! I feel very lucky he took time to talk with me.
