4/22/54 St. Goar, Germany

Here we are tonight on the banks of the Rhine, going to take a boat to Cologne tomorrow then to Holland.  It is still winter in Swit[zerland] with snow and skiiers [sic] everywhere, & very beautiful.  We were up to the castle in the rear of picture, which was somewhat bombed out during the war.  The palaces in Vienna were really ornate & even saw a few Russians, but no restrictions at all & things very reasonable.  Harold & Jean
