Happy Easter!

A personal worst for holiday greetings--January taken up with the last stages of AIDS for a dear friend's son--early February full-time work--and then the mad scramble to research and get ready for this trip. The "cyber-fare" special appeared on the Internet on February 4 and we were on the plane three weeks later. It was a fascinating trip, full of wonders. (We want to go back.)

Hope your not-so-new year is progressing in satisfying ways.
