Boxing Day (contd. see last card)
Today we toured some shopping malls you'd love, Mum - some really high-class stores, visited a museum of children's book illustrators & local artists, and the gardens overlead. Here the Christmas displays were marvellous: trees decorated according to themes and illuminated outdoors. Happy New Year, will write soon!
Love, [CENSORED: forename]
