The Bell is ready
Wojtek sent me a photo of the finished bell. I was delighted to see the bell but - Oh Dear, what about the handle? I realised that it looked like the rather pathetic drawing I had sent. I had not really thought about making clear the type of handle I liked. After a little reflection I sent Wojtek photos of handles I preferred and asked him if it would be possible to produce another one. Within days I received a photo of a new handle that would be put on the finished bell. So you see its sensible to ask for changes if you are not happy. This was the original bell with that handle.
The final challenge was to pay for the bell. Wojtek sent me details of his bank account. Neither I nor the staff at the local branch of my bank understood any of the details. Someone at head office did and the money was sent and received within three days. The bell was on its way.
