The annual Christmas letter is one way we keep in touch with our friends. They have become a chronicle of our lives and travels. They were written in such places as Tirana, Albania; Sitka, Alaska; Bratislava, Slovakia; Podgorica Montenegro; Belgrade, Serbia: Budapest, Hungary and Brussels Belgium. Some have pictures.

Each year we tried to write our Christmas letter on the First Sunday in Advent, to give our friends the color of the approaching season wherever we were. Sometimes we missed our deadline and the letter went out late. (One went out on New Year's Eve, 1993 from Tirana, Albania. It is one of Rich's favorites). We've archived some of our past letters to the right.

We have also posted pictures of Christmas Markets from Yerevan, Armenia to London.  You can see them at Chritstmas Markets
