It would have been easy to overlook Lourens Poorter’s daughter at the
university’s birthday party.
Her father gave a presentation at the Dies Natalis on the dynamics between species in tropical rain forests. First Franka had to sit still for two hours on a chair in the theatre and then everyone had to exchange the latest gossip at the drinks party. How boring can it get? Luckily she had a Donald Duck comic with her.
