Thanks for the card and all
of your help. Cosmos was great! It was so relaxing to
get away for 16 days. I made several new friends from
around the world and got invited to India, Pennsylvania
and New York! Europe was in fall and is beautiful. The
leaves had just turned and the temperature was great.
Our guide was from Amsterdam and spoke seven languages!
She was great! Where shall I go next?
