Hi David and Susan,
I hope this letter finds you well. I was overjoyed when I got your letter. Thank you so much for those kind words and the lovely photos of us. Sorry for the delay in replying, we got so caught up in our unpacking, we didn’t get time to check our mail until a week later.
Looking at these photos brings back so many memories, and we cannot thank you enough for your warm hospitality and the way you took out time to show us around to all the best spots. John was also saying that we would have been lost in that country hadn’t it been for you two. Thanks to both of you once again..
In fact, we were thinking, why don’t you and David come here to Dubai on a holiday, it’ll be really fun! We told you about the spare room we have, so you’re always welcome to stay with us when you’re here. You could always think about making the trip during November-February, as the weather is lovely that time around.
Please do consider coming here, and once again thank you so much for the photos!
