Jan's parents perceive us as "white devils."   There is nothing we can do about their perception, except perhaps feel sorry for them and what they miss in not seeing, as individuals,  such a large percentage of people in the city in which they live.   I am reading the book Papillon by Henri Charriere.  It is a true story and Steve and I saw the movie based on this story  when it came out in 1973.  It starred Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman.   The connection is this.  Though Papillon is innocent, he is sentenced to a life sentence, and yet, when he escapes and meets different people from different islands and countries, many of them don't see him as a criminal, they see an honest man.  It is a fascinating read.
