I was really pleased to get your letters. I really have started a little stamp collection with the stamps from them. The places you have visited sound so interesting. I hope I someday have the opportunity to see some of them.
How do you deal with the language barrier? Do a lot of people speak English? What would you say is the most interesting place you’ve visited so far?
I hope you’re taking a lot of pictures. I want to see what all of those places look like.
