Herscher and Balton, USA

Dear Alan,

It has taken us several weeks to begin absorbing the experience of our journey to your homeland. We were dazzled by your warm and embracing welcome. We were dazzled by content and beauty. We were enriched by the quality of people we met from the rising of the sun and its setting each and every day.

You, Alan, were the masterful architect who drew the blueprint for each day. We set high expectations and they were exceeded. We are grateful to you and your team beyond measure.

In the weeks to come we will attempt to create a photo narrative of a significant number of photographs (we took over 1,000). Our memories remain vivid and in abundance. We'll keep you posted.

We would be thrilled to welcome you and your family to Los Angeles. Please let us know how we may be helpful with your plans.

Pam, Jeff, Myna and I send our warmest regards from home to home.
