Response 1:

Dear Billy,

Thank you for sending me the photos of our wonderful time in Brazil, I truly appreciate it.

I apologize for not writing to you sooner; I was caught up with my harsh return to reality. I came home to more issues than there were before I'd left, though that is a conversation for another time. Suffice it to say, I was too busy with work. I went through the photos you sent and I could not help feeling nostalgic- very nostalgic- of how happy I was with you guys for company, in a place where it felt like anything could happen. The food, the people, the scenery, the wildlife- it was all absolutely breathtaking and I cannot thank you enough for convincing me to come with you. We have to go there again for another holiday, it's not up for discussion. Please do come visit for a few days, since I know you've got a few days off from work, as well. Bring Kaz and Inej with you if they are able to make it.

I hope to hear from you soon.

With love,
