[written by Jean] Just arrived in Taipei, Taiwan and will leave here tomorrow Hong Kong.  Fed cookies to tame deer yesterday – made us think of Grant's Farm at St. Louis.

[written by HH] Tonight we are going to a Mongolian barbecue I had several meals with just chop sticks, but are really getting along fine.  Get English paper daily – but not quite like WSJ.  – Mom & Dad
