1982 Europe with Sankers - July

First card from HH, second one they shared in writing. Obviously the chocolate ice cream part is written by Jean. Interesting the contrasts between the 1982 trip to Paris and the 1954 trip when visiting Calvin and they had to walk more because of it costing more to ride between different zones.  The Crater Lake card is a reminder of the 1962 trip there and also one made there while visiting the Morgans in Madras between 1978-1982.

Hi Everyone – we are now in NYC & are to be on a big plane to Paris.  Sat next to a lady about Grandma's age going to Mongola – she knew Thelma Holmes.  In Paris till Thurs. @ Colbert Hotel phone 325-85-65.  From there on ? mark, but we are looking forward to it.  Appreciate MV escorting us to the airport.  Hope all goes well – the time will go fast and the kittens will really change.  Did forget the camera – the Sankers are great camera "Bugs."  Will call the office collect.  Love, the Co. Comm. Uibles

We were here this P.M. – lots of gardens in the City.  Had a souffle for supper then to Eiffel Tower for a sun set view.  We have metro passes so hop on & off the buses & subways frequently.

Our hotel is a block from Notre Dame and the Louvre.  One could spend years there.  HH had little jet lag but I fell asleep eating choc. ice cream Sunday nite.  Felt fine Monday after 12 hours sleep!

Save your $ for here.
