Nick and Ivana Ross-Brookbank write with news of a new addition to their family – Alexandra Hope Ross-Brookbank – born in Berlin on 12th Jan 2011. Nick is currently living in Berlin and working for Rolls-Royce. He writes: “We have decided to put our roots down and have just built and moved in to a rather grand modern town house in the city, just a stones throw from the old Tempelhof airport. Whenever you’re a bit down and out, all you need to do is take a walk across the now unused airfield and stare at that colossal building and soak up the history, both good and bad, that it has seen to put things in to perspective! Otherwise, it’s the usual bratwurst and beer ex-pat lifestyle!” We all wish Nick, Ivana, Alexandra and family the very best.
