Biels in 1968
My Aunt Marian kept many of the letters my mother, Donna Biel, wrote to her. She returned them in 2010. Most are recorded here. They were not entered chronologically. The best way to sort through them is to use the index on the sidebar and view them by year.
Dear Marian and Frank,
You soon will be getting a form letter from Ohio but I thought I would write you some things that aren't in that letter.
We didn't have any difficulty coming through customs. The day we landed was the biggest day of Carnaval. None of our suitcases were opened. We are missing our cartridge tape recorder and Japanese camera that we had in a briefcase on the plane. We couldn't lock the briefcase and should have taken these things out of it and taken them to our seat. We wrote to the pastor in Brooklyn, New York, to see if we had left those things at his house and received an answer that we didn't leave them there.
Letter ends here.
