Dear Mom,

I am back at language school now and will be here until June. This Amharic course is a long haul, but will be worth it if I come out being able to speak a little.

The check came at Christmas time. Thanks a lot. The boxes haven’t come yet but I’m not surprised. Thanks for all your letters.

Iede, the second Dutchman has finally come back – he’s been late due to Flu and Liver sickness. He went down to Yabello yesterday. Eef, who has been alone for the last month will be glad to see him.

All is relatively quiet here. The international press tends to blow up most of what goes on.

I play tennis most afternoons and the American military has a movie theater which we can attend and do quite often ….
