If this isn’t a good omen, I don’ t know what is: On the day we got our official stamp of approval for our 2012 Silvaner, I was travelling (as they say in Trinidad), but in this case by train. The passenger next to me was slightly unusual, a beautiful macaw. If our Green Feather project can create a communal spirit in the same way that this beautiful bird brought people on the train carriage together, then I would be very happy. Ok, ok, the link is very tentative, granted. But how can you not write a blog post about this image that will stay in my mind: a blonde figure walking away on the platform pulling her suitcase, with this beautiful macaw riding on top of that suitcase. He clearly enjoyed travelling!
