We have completed our journey through the center of the Earth and emerged on the other side in the hamlet of Adelaide, Australia. I will not bore you with the details of our travails across boiling rivers of molten lava, through underground seas filled with the most fantastic of beasts, and through enormous caverns filled with beautiful crystals twice the height of a man; suffice it to say, we have arrived safe and whole.
True to astral predictions, it is summer here,
and a very pleasant one at that. Other predictions (namely, that the
citizens on the other side of the world walk on their hands) have proven
fortunately false. I am glad I will not have to re-learn to type with
my toes as this will speed my return to writing and corresponding with
those of you we have left behind in our beloved homeland.
With much affection,
