    Dear Louise, dear Martin
    I have seen many beautiful things while climbing in the European mountains,
    but Ridge Camp is one of the best places I have ever been. We realy had a
    great time.
    Since Martin told us not to use cars, what I did, I unfortunately did not
    have the pleasure to meet Louise this time. But among others, this is a
    perfect reason to return, and I am sure I will. I hope the place is going to
    be the same the next time - there is no reason to change anything, it could
    not be better than it is now.
    Attached I send you some pictures of our week-end. If you need more of them,
    please tell me.
    Thank you very much again, and enjoy our pictures.

    Dear Martin and Louise!
    I enjoyed the weekend at your mountain-cabin very much. The beautiful
    landscape and the peaceful quietness starkly contrasted our urban
    environment in New York. All was really wonderful!
    Thanks, Matthias G****

    Dear Martin
    Here are more photos of our trip. Unfortunately I was rather attracted by
    the beauty of nature than by the beauty of our faces, so there are not too
    many pictures with people on it.
    By the way, as I told you, we would like to come back again. Would Ridge
    Camp be available for about a week over Christmas?
    Thanks for your response
