Hello - got here about 8:00 p.m. - but almost 11:00 p.m. before we got to the hotel.  Flight over was good – tomorrow we go on the tour over London.  Hotel room is sure not Holiday Inn style.  5 girls in our room.  Tell Grandma Hi – do write!!

Hi!   Was here today, also at Hampton Court – sure beats reading a History book!!  Tomorrow I'm planning on taking the "tube" downtown and just look around.  How are all of the Lions?  John - the vans over here - are ugly!!  Just can't wait!!  Love, Bert

Paris postcard mailed 1972.  Captioned: Souvenir de Paris. Souvenir of Paris. Ein Souvenir von Paris. Un ricardo di Parigi.
1972 Roberta's postcard from Paris - June 26
June 26, 1972 [only card that is dated and only one that has a legible postmark]
Hi!  Am having a great time in Paris.  Am staying with 2 girls (sisters) from Toledo, Ohio and are really having a good time.
It's really funny to go meet the French people and try to talk to them.  The money over here is really pretty - all colors on the bills.
Hope you are having fun in Mexico – did you write Mrs. Landrum?
Love, BErt
