Re: Nervous about my first letter..
Dear Worrywart. Take a jillion pictures and quit worrying. Send him a post card, also, while you are out there, vacationing. He will be delighted to know that you were thinking about him. Also, make notes on what your really like, and perhaps what you really dislike about the vacation. In his narrow space, he will be glad to hear it all. So, have a great time, quit worrying, and Happy Writing! :-)
