7/7/73 Dear Mother
Staying just a block from the ocean - the weather is cool and very damp.  We had dinner at Grace's home last night - a real treat & have talked with the folks that Serena stayed with.  Hot water is a big luxury here.  Grace & her Mother drove us around today and met us at the airport.  We also made the trip downtown on the bus - about 8¢.  They have no fuel [or no beef?? – looks like beef but fuel fits the context better] here the 1st 15 days of each month - but lots of auto traffic everywhere.  Love, Jean, Harold & John
