Cheers! Silvia,

We're home! We're also exhausted, so I will not write the "real" letter now. I just want you to know that we arrived home safely.

The trip was WONDERFUL! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The hotel in Lhasa was just perfect for us as it was in the Tibetan section; the upgrade hotel that you arranged for us in Xi'an was Paradise. We feel so fortunate that we connected with you to make arrangements for our trip.

I will write more after some sleep!
