It was cold & misty by this time. They were all esconsed for the night - families with their children huddled together - young & old - their carts in the background loaded with household goods & their bullocks lying in front of them.

In the distance, were the lights of the booths set up with food vendors - sweets & rice meats - cigarettes & little cafes The types here again, were incredible in variety & color.

Our party stayed till midnight - then a wonderful, romantic ride home - shivering with cold in the jeep. Fritz Shoemacher was a wonderful companion for the evening. He was as delighted as I was with the experience.

AM.- Drawing of the children as gift for Betty & Charles. Will finish it tomorrow, I hope.

Lunch at Strand with Dr. Hauser & Shoemacher. Said hello to Andre Nicoletti - who was sweet enough to wait for fifteen minutes after we had left in order to ask to see me next week. Nice?
