Ibiza, Spain

Detail of the Harbor, Cathedral

September 1970


We are in Ibiza and the sun is shining as usual and it is warm though the sea is rough today but we went swimming anyway. We have a nice view of the Mediterranean from our hotel room and just have to walk down the hill to the rocks in order to swim. It is crowded though, with hippies and Germans and French and the seaside often looks like Coney Island. We are staying in a pension that overlooks the Med. and we can watch planes take off and land – a busy airport. Day after tomorrow will go to a bullfight here – Cordobes! is fighting. Hope they have good bulls but fear the reverse.

Love, Tim

Typical Corner



September 1970?


We are in Madrid relaxing in hotel room. Have been to the Prado and a bullfight. One matador cut on ear but none did very well. If ind I have forgotten much spanish but we get along. On Tus. we will go to Ibiza for about a week and then fly back to Germany. Should be relaxed and sunned by then. Spend a couple more days here and see Toledo and the Escorial. Hope you are all faring well and not too travel-weary.

Love, Tim

Dear Mother

We had a lovely dinner last night and then watched Flamenco dancers until the wee hrs. Today we spent several hours in the D’El Prado (like the Louvre) and Kathy ran into 3 kids from her school – one her roommate for next year!! We’re going by train tomorrow to Lisbon, Portugal to be on the beach for a week.

Love, Dede

The postcard is of the Christ of the Lanterns located at the Plaza de los Capuchinos in Cordoba, Spain. It was created in 1794 by Juan Navarro Leon.

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
