Dear Hedda,

I wrote you this morning a brief letter and now it's evening, you have been in my mind all the time today and I like to write you again althou I'll try to be less personal now.

I'm now in Egypt and I'm leaving tomorrow, been here for a couple of days in a camp, waiting - I've been in town and didn't have much good time but I enjoyed the idea that you've been here before and anyway I feel like a horse near his stable, the smell of home I didn't feel for many years
