This letter is from my dad to my mom circa 1970, when she went to visit family in Bremerhaven, Germany (her hometown). He wrote it when he got back from dropping her off at the airport.

Crinkly paper air mail letters are so much better than email.

My expatriot pal Celeste, currently living in Berlin, has a blog called Tidepooler that yesterday featured my parent’s 1966 wedding. To spice things up over here, I asked her to contribute today’s photo. This was taken in Berlin earlier, and Celeste says: “Grocery shopping in Deutschland is like winning a race.” Over here I usually feel more defeat than victory when leaving Trader Joe’s.
