Genoa, Italy

January 1973

We are in Genoa waiting for the train to take us on our way to St Raphael, France. This is such an interesting city – walked down to the docks yesterday aft. and saw the huge ships coming and going. Just great! Everybody seems to be getting along fine – so far!! Steve even told Va. he was glad he had come!!!! We hated to leave Switzerland – it is so beautiful.. but every new thing we see is great!! Food is good. The kids have lived on spaghetti!! They love it!

Love, Jean

Florence, Italy

Sept 1968

This is just across the street from the Palacio de la Signoria and the Ufizzi Gallery, the palace where Medici family lived for some time. As I remembered, Florence is really as beautiful as ever. On your next trip to Europe you really should plan to come, it is really lovely. We will leave for Rome on Wednesday, how wonderful.

Saludos, Alicia

We are here in a nice hotel right on a truly beautiful beach. We spent from 8:30 am till about 3 pm on the train from Genoa – thru Monte Carlo – along the mediterranean. very impressive. We’ll be here 2 days so can rest and enjoy the beach and beauty. All ok.

Love, Dede

Here I am at the beach getting sunburned.

Fountain of Square of Spanish Trinity of Mount


We arrive Saturday night in Rome after a lovely drive through the south of France. Rome is incredible beautiful and we are very happy with Eduardo’s family and my sister. I hope everything is all right in Mexico. How was Tom’s graduation? Give my regards to Bill when he comes back. My sister is very busy with her exams but I hope she will be finished on Friday.

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!
