Hello Gert,
Very nice title 'hippies emeriti'!
When I travelled in Northern India in the 90s I saw several times older westerners who still looked like they did in the 60s. On my last travels in South India in 2017 and 2018, I didn't see them anymore.
Was it because of the other location or were they no longer there?
Maybe they are staying in Stockholm now. On the other hand, these men here can also simply be 'occasional hippies' and after their day's work they look like a bank clerk ...
I confess that I had to look up who Frida Kahlo was anyway. So I also read that she was married twice to Diego Ribera who I remember from a few works in Mexico.
Best regards, Paul

Thank you Paul,
I am a bit surprised you hadn't heard of Frida Kahlo. Lars just told me she is immensely popular in the Netherlands after several recent exhibitions and a TV documentary series. Don't you read his comments in Danish? ;-)
Best regards,

Hi Gert,

I dare not say that she is not known in Belgium.
I don't know. It may be a big gap in my cultural knowledge.

Kind regards,
