It was wonderful to hear from you and I read your e mail a few times indulging every word of your letter. I am amazed that you were part of a South African tour group on your Russian boat trip. The South Africans are very friendly people who interacts easily with foreign people. As you have mentioned, it would have been nice if I was part of the group. So I suggest that when you plan your next tour, please inform me. I might be able to join you and I would love to since you are such nice pleasant people. Thanks for the photographs, especially the group photo in front of the church. I must say, Machiko, you and your handsome look so stylish and stand out amongst the group. You are really two special people and I am so glad that I have met you on the Mozart boat. Thank you also for the gifts that you are sending me. That is awesome and I am looking forward to receive it. All of the best………maybe one of these days I come and visit you.
