Just returned from taking a couple who had never been to the States on a Taste of America tour. Starting in New York, we made our way up to Boston, down to Washington, across to Dallas-Fort Worth, on to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion, Las Vegas, Yosemite, Carmel and San Francisco. What a beautiful and wonderful country we live in — and how fortunate we are to live here. The one comment that we heard from them again and again was how kind and friendly Americans are. Waiters, shop assistants, hotel clerks all went out of their way to make them feel comfortable. Two thumbs up America.
