Excerpt from Message

This part of the world is utterly fascinating. A month in Japan was tantalizing it is so quaint beautiful + the people charming. Now this port + Hong Kong so different but equally interesting. The medley of people here is fantastic. I seem to have only superlatives but I’m sure you understand. We are staying with the ship to Jakarta hoping to fly to Bali but personally I feel our presence can be only a nuisance. However, I should love to see Bali. Merry Christmas to you both Virginia
