Robert,

We returned to USA yesterday. Thank you for ALL of your services. Including these last ones about the barometer and the invoices. The trip was an absolutely total success. I have nothing but high praise for China Highlights, from the choice of itineraries through the wonderful tour guides you provided. I say this as a professional tour guide myself, so I recognize quality when I see it. I also appreciate all of your efforts, and several of your guides, in helping me try to find a Chinese barometer. In that regard, I want you to know that Jackie, your guide in Beijing, at his own cost, gave me a barometer/altimeter that he purchased on his own for me. He presented it to me upon our departure on 17 Sept. I was particularly touched by this action on his part. Again, Thank you for all of your kind attention.

Sincerely,

Alan
