Dear Hedda
Now I'm kind of established here and it seems it'll take a long time untill I'll be sent to my final destination - And in the meantime I'll have to do something here and it's very interesting.

I am living in a big hotel, have a big room, as comfortable as possible, in this climat and rather good meals many times a day.  I have a personal servant bring the whole day with the polishing of my shoes and helping me to dress and undress my fancy [[strikethrough]] wit [[/strikethrough]] white uniform with [[strikethrough]] sorth [[/strikethrough]] shorts. It's hot like hell here even during the night and it'll take some time to get accustomed again with this climat, worst that the one I had in Central America.
