Pepign from Holland, in Two Bridges

(32/100 Strangers) Pepign (pronounced similar to Pipen) is spending several weeks in the United States, visting the Bronx home of his Grandfather, Walter. Walter was born in the Bronx in 1907, although Pepign now lives in Holland. I ran into him on the East River Esplanade, Downtown. He told me he loves talking to people, and even met strangers in The Bronx. "I met some of The Latinos there. They respected me, because my Grandfather was from here." Pepign also showed me a large scare on his head, from a car accident. A car hit him, and he didn't have his seat belt on. "I had two angels," referring to each shoulder, which kept him from being thrown from the car. He said it could have easily gone the other way. Thanks for taking the time out, Pepign.
