> Luckily we had my cell phone for backup.  As we were entering San

> Over the next couple hours we had become paranoid concerning the potential

> After expressing our gratitude Ito put it mildly), I gave him our PO box

> Now, if you'lll excuse me, Rodna and I are going to the wharf for dinner.
> Later, Moscow.
