Peter Minter taught Design Technology and I taught Physics in a Southern African school. We were members of a multinational team of teachers (from Australia to Zimbabwe). Peter was a very softspoken person; his wife Pam was a homemaker. They too resided in the staff quarters.
Sometimes when Minters went on outings I had the pleasure of feeding the fishes in their aquarium. As we were of nearly the same age group, we had common interests.

Once Pam organised an exhibition of her works of art in Alliance Francais, Gaborone (where I studied 2 levels of French). As a good friend, I also attended the exhibition. At that time she asked me to point out my most favourite one from the exhibits. To my pleasant surprise, the very next day, they sent the picture to me and said that it was a gift to a `good friend'!
I think that good friendship has no barriers.
