32.0 On Chieko
Saturday, right before leaving the UK, Kate and I spent the day with Chieko, Constable's partner. They met when John was faculty in Japan.
It is worthwhile to note that Chieko is accomplished in her own right. A successful young professional in an international financial firm. Couple that with relocating into a family, a culture, and a language of another continent, and you can see the value of her achievements.
Beyond that, however, she is also genuinely kind -- kind to us, kind to her flatmate, whom we met over tea, and kind to her husband.
We are honored to have met them both, and look forward to seeking Walleye with them soon.
