Siamese Dancers

Bill was to mail this from Bangkok on Saturday but didn’t have time. He went over on Friday AM and got back to Rangoon about 2 Sat. Aft. so you know he was rushed! He had 2 real honest to goodness steaks with trimmings while there – one of the reasons one goes to Bangkok from here.

Arrived here ok and it is hotter than I expected – 95 degrees yesterday when we landed but dry heat.

The persons to whom Susan had written are anxious to see us and we already have lots of meetings line up. However offices are only open from 7 – 1 pm. so we will have free time for resting in pm.

Love Bill

Malaga, Spain

Gibralfaro way up


Dear K

Didn’t have a chance to go skiing, as everything was shut up until the season opens on the 12th so no broken legs or anything. Really enjoying the sun in Malaga. Right now sitting in a sidewall cafe drinking a “cerveza”. Move on to Madrid tonight etc. Hope we didn’t put you out too much while we were there. Hope your SAT went alright tambien.

Love, Tom and Jen

Salzburg, Austria

Dear Mom

This is a lovely city – we toured and walked yesterday in the lovely spring sun. Kathy and I are trying all the gorgeous (and fattening) pastries – no wonder many people here are plump! We’re off by train to Vienna this noon. Wish you were here.

Love, Dede

The festival city Salzburg – the Mirabell garden with the cathedral and the fortress.

Venice, Italy

Rio and Greeks’ bridge

June 1968

After some delay getting visas for Hungary in Rome, we came to this beautiful Venice – crowded with German tourists. Will take the train for Budapest tomorrow morning; Sheila will come along for four or five days and then fly back to Mexico via London. Hope your African safari went all well!

Best Regards, Stella

Dear Noah

There are lots of sheep in Ireland, 500,000 on the Dingle peninsula alone – Most have little colored splotches on their backs so you can ell who owns them. There is also a lot of green country, because it rains almost every day!

Love, Tim

Eastern Cataract in flood. Victoria Falls, Zambia

Zimbabwe, Feb 1988


All going well. I gave my presentation this morning and it went OK. I’ve been active with the sub-group with which I work and we have the China trip finalized. We’ll be at Victoria Falls this weekend. Ruth is here but there isn’t much for spouses so I think it OK that you didn’t come.

Love, Bill
