The Hague, November 1982

I have been watching BBC on TV – the cable has finally been hooked up. The first thing I watched was the Queen opening Parliament – it was glorious in all her jewels and satins, gold coach, Diana and Charles, Margaret Thatcher, et al!! I made tollhouse cookies today, walked to the street market at Stevinstraat this aft in the mist – not too chilly – rather nice, in fact. Hope you are ok.

Love, Va
