Also Erik and Viviane seem made for each other. They got a taste of that in 1962. Then they met each other at the christmas ball and immediately struck the spark. The young couple – She was 17, Erik 19 – spoke after school secretly, or with friends at home, and every day wrote one of them a letter. “We had a whole circuit of friends of the tram, went home, and they were the postmen of our letters.” At the end of a foreign trip got Erik a cold shower. He had agreed with Viviane, but it was a friend of her that came up to the break to announce. Viviane had trouble with the long periods that they visit each other sometimes have not seen, and asked to prompt all her love letters back, as was the custom in the ’60s. After a life with another man, and meanwhile, 50 years later, she found the letters back in the kitchen. “I’m still an iPad and wi-fi purchased, but it is still quite a long time before I a mail was send”. How they him found, how Erik responded, or he was married, and what happened to the love letters happened, tells the torque in Alloo and Love.
