poorest yet. The other meals were fairly good. This one had very little choice & little of even that - & they served ice tea without sugar. Fortunately, I have fruit & some others have been passing around nuts & more fruit - so I {w} can't say I'm going to be hungry at any time.

Turned the watch back for the third time & debated on whether we're losing time or gaining it. I decided we've gained it but some officer's wife insists we lost the time. Everyone on the car is quite friendly - after riding together for 3 days, there's a feeling of intimacy & we talk to each other freely & wander into different seats continually. Slept all right last night but the porters aroused us much too early in the morning at 7am for no particular reason at all. (The air conditioning in our car broke down & it's darn hot now)

Pardon the writing - it's rather difficult with the train jerking all the time. (I'm sending the Wayne W.[?] house key back in a separate envelope).

Regards to all - & love to you and Rema.

Irv
