He meets a couple from Varde, on his trip to the USA, where he was entertaining on Batory ship. Where he entertained the guest, It was so strange because my dad told them, "my wife use to live in Varde". To make a long story short it was her uncle Sørens son Svend my mother use to live in the central hotel when she first came to Denmark. It was Sven, Sørens Christiansen son that took over the central hotel in Varde.
Under the war, money was not very big so he would take his harmonica and go around playing in the street. He has always been a survivor.
He was an amazing man and fun to be around. He always works very hard. Teacher during the day in business school, and play in his band in the evening. besides that, he made bongo drums and maracas my mother painted them. Both my parents was two active people my mother was a great painter as a hobby.
