Greetings! it has been a lovely sunny weekend here. I didn’t see any animals. I just rested, read and walked around. Today I’m going to Tanzania for a week. I hope all is well with you and wish you were 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

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

Sorry for not phoning you while in U.S. We only stayed a few days. We had an around the world trip to Japan and Asia, was great. However, everything goes down the closer you get to India. Will return to the funny farm tomorrow – perhaps I don’t have a job – been gone for 3 months. I guess our father will depart soon – big changes. Don’t know what to expect. Write when you have time.

PS: Note tennis shoes on “nature dance”

My dears,

Abidjan is as glitzy as ever, and after 5 days of rain and mud up to here in Bamako, it’s ok for a little R & R! This has been a hard working but heavily nostalgic trip. I’ve been wined and dined by old friends in Dakar, Bamako and here. What happy memories it brings back!

Much love
