The surname Ofra Lotre was a French name which means “born of the rivers”. There are numerous passenger lists available for the first name Lotre. Passenger lists are the key to knowing how your forefathers arrived here, and when exactly they left for America – from their ship name to port of departure and arrival. You can find passenger lists for just about every popular American port.
In addition to the passenger lists, the family album of the departure and arrival of Andra and her husband, Abraham, is also available as a printable version. This family album has many pictures of the beautiful landscape and scenery of the place, as well as many pictures of Andra and her children during different times in their lives. This album, called the Memenangkan, is very important to African-American history, as it provides a glimpse into life before slavery, as well as the role of the slave in daily life in the area. It is very interesting to learn that the first person who recorded the account of the journey of Lotre and his family from Mohegan, Egypt, was a slave who became the wife of one of Lotre’s descendants. Another interesting aspect of this book is that the slave who wrote the record was born in France, a nation that at that time was not even in existence as the book’s events were in Africa.
Another interesting aspect of the Memenangkan hadiah is that it tells of Andra and her husband Abraham building a large and impressive palace in Coptic gold, which was used by theahlas (Muslims). The palace, called the bahwa dua, or golden temple was built over a mudbrick-red pit, which is mentioned in the bible. Some of the twenty-one rooms in this palace were decorated with exquisite carvings, while others had mosaic tiles, and beautiful paintings of animals and people. The Palace also included a gymnasium for the youths of the palace, which is probably its most famous room.
One of the most important sections of the book is its stories of travels and adventures through Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Vietnam, and Cambodia, among other places. It is interesting to learn that Lotre spent almost half his life in these places, traveling extensively, visiting almost all of them at different times, sometimes staying in hotels, sometimes on boats, and sometimes driving across Asia. The account is full of vivid descriptions and unforgettable experiences, as he tells of meeting the local people, hearing their songs, tasting their food, and more. In addition to this, it is also interesting to know that the author was able to marry a Thai princess.
Membrances from Borneo are sprinkled here and there, as the author describes his experiences there, but much of the book is taken up with descriptions of traveling around Sumatra and Borneo in search of such tit-bits as “tiger snake charmers” and “folk music”. This book is not only a travel guide but it is also a story of a true man looking to find himself and learning to accept others for who they really are. It is a simple yet interesting read, with an excellent plot and enjoyable characters. The real key to the book is in how the author describes the cultural differences between the various societies that he visits and interacts with, and how each society dealt with outsiders, especially in the old days.
Loret de mar is available in many languages, including Thai, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Indonesian. However, the most popular version that I have seen is in English, which makes it a great work to translate into any non-English speaking country, as it is written in an easy to understand way that almost anyone will be able to understand. For anyone who is planning a trip to Borneo or Southeast Asia in general, I highly recommend Loret de Mar. If you have never seen the world’s largest island before, or if you are looking for a unique travel experience, this book is highly recommended.
