We just got back from Rome – had a glorious time sightseeing, window shopping (elegant!), eating pasta, drinking cappuccinos several times per day. We had a good time. Rome is history, chaotic, beautiful and fun. I got black boots and postcards – nothing else. Wish you had been there too.
We made it to Chartres today and both liked it very much. We took the train out and spent about two hours wandering around the church and museum. Time has flown by. Weather has been mostly ok. Will write letter with details.
Remember the 3-wheelers in Rangoon? These are highly decorated ones. We came up to Islamabad today, the all new city which is now capitol of Pakistan. It is a very beautiful area – not far from the Khyber pass into Afghanistan. We got lots of mail that had been forwarded to us the other day. Hope to get a letter from you before we leave here. Karachi was fun.
April 12 is International Day of Human Space Flight. It commemorates the anniversary of the first human manned space flight buy Yuri Gargarin on April 12, 1961. Gargarin was 27 years old and he circled the Earth for 1 hour and 48 minutes.
Here I am holding my child up against the statue of Yuri Gargarin in Moscow, Russia. I love that statue.
Well, here I am, about halfway on my trip to Europe. Left home two months ago and if things go well, will still be here another month and a half. Would have sent word earlier but lost my address book and had to wait for somebody to send me your address. Hope all is well with you. You will be hearing from me again.
