Dear Mother:
No way to explain this trip on a post card!!  We are staying in a large house over the owners store – w/3 maids & 5 daughters – 3, 15 & three in their 20's.  The weather super.  Sat thru a Catholic Mass, all in Spanish.  All kind of 'trspt.' problems this wk!  (Open truck).  We leave Wed. for Cuernavaca.  We've seen beautiful hills & flowers, pyramids, churches, etc.  Taking us thru Cigar Factory tomorrow.  Quite a language barrier.  Hope you are well!  Bill has a cold + 7 others – me & 3 others okay!!  Love, Mary & Bill

Dear Mother: I have been on enough dusty, cobble stoned roads to do me for a lifetime!!  Today we're going to a Health "Spa" – Mineral Hot Springs - - mud bath, etc. (we're going to see the flowers, etc.  Some say it is very pretty) Big time, Sat. Nite, our hostess took us to a Line [or Lion or Live?] dance.  2 Bands -- mostly Mexican music.  I danced some w/ a young man in our group.  Turned out Bill was a guest of honor!  He escorted one of the seven "[???]."  We were introduced to Pres. & wives from different districts, Mex.  This is a trip to remember!  Love, Mary & Bill
