Roy's Postcards: 1977/08/04

Inscription:

Dear Roy,
We're having a really great trip. The sights are beautiful and I only wish there were more time to see it all in. They've been feeding us really well on the ship and I find it hard to resist all the pastry and ice cream everywhere. But to compensate I have been running 2 miles a day on deck. Tonight at 5 o'clock we sail from Copenhagen to Stockholm then on to Helsinki and Leningrad.

I'm planning on coming to LA in latter part of Aug. We return Aug 16.
ROGER

Leonard's comments:

No idea who Roger is, maybe a mission buddy, but this is such a cool postcard and there's no revealing personal information in it (apart from an address for my dad which I don't remember seeing before), so I'm leaving it in.

This sounds like a cruise ship... but a cruise ship with a stop in the late-70s Soviet Union? Pretty wild.
