Hi You Two,

We are back from our adventures with many stories to tell, none as exotic as yours but fantastic as well. Judging from the photos you are once again sharing so many of your skills, knowledge and compassion. It all looks so exciting. Once we settle in, we will try to work on some donations for he school. Ask if they can use books in English, and chaklk for the chalkboards, of which I have tons. We arrived home yesterday, about 5P.M. fell asleep earlier than usual and are now up at 2A.M. so much for readjustment.

We fell in love with Amsterdam, its architecturem museums, people, etc. Woke up this morning and still wanted to be there. Had not seen so much art in a long time. The Anne Frank house was extremely moving and well done. Just to think we were standing in the building where she hid for all those years. We also stood in the room where Rembrandt painted some of his works. Definitely the Van Gogh museum was a highlight. Throughtout the countries we visited we so appreciated meshing with the Europeans, appreciaiting their stories of travel as well as the many different languages surrounding us. The cruise was great, and we met some wonderful people partiucularly those sitting at our table. All come from Florida, but have had many diverse experiences. Gary is married to a Jewish Peruavian born woman, Hansi, and Erike is Dutch, married to Sennecca who was born in Sri Lank. There was a younger couple Juan and Brittany who are dating several years. We had great conversati9on and a lot of laughs. This experience and all the experiences will linger for a great while. We will write more as we settle back into routines.

Love and Miss You! Keep up the marvelous cointributiions you are making, and know we are thinking of you. Love, Mom and Dad
