Anu was 74 years old when she crossed deep water to settle on the other side of the world.
Embracing Ireland's 'One hundred thousand welcomes', she quickly built an interesting life for herself, adapted to the weather and assembled a large circle of friends, most of them younger than her.
Her insatiable curiosity attracted her to many new situations, all of which were carefully recorded in her writings. She kept her brilliant mind well-oiled until the very end.
Anu's story came to an end when she was 93 years old. She left me a wonderful legacy of friends, some of whom I have visited in their homes abroad.
Anu's vibrant spirit is everywhere.
