Excerpt from Message

Dear Annie, Ruth & Rodee – Thanks for the big send-off. It was fun. Hope you didn’t wait [illegible] freight at the airport. Portugal was fun & saw lots of it – But this is my town! It’s beautiful. Has everything. People are wonderful & friendly. Met Kay Duffy by accident – Our co-worker now working in Copenhagen. We had some fun toghether – all day in Toledo, yesterday. Meet again in Sevilla. Saw bull fight Palm Sunday. A great spectacle – but never again. Say 5 bulls killed. Reaction of the crowd was exciting. Feel right at home here & easily I could stay forever. Grand weather, but chilly. Palm Sunday big event. Easter in Malaga, [illegible]. Leave here to Cahors for Cordoba. Love Mona.
