Mr. Kippel along with his wife and two children from Sweden arrived at Kappadu in the afternoon of Christmas. Kippel is an architect who has contacts with some Benedictine communities. They stayed overnight in our guest house and went away to Vagamon on the 26th morning. On the 30th morning they were taken by Fr. Prior Sheen to our cardamom plantation at Anakkara. They returned to Kapadu that evening. One more night was spent at Kappadu and they left for Kochi on the 31st morning.
