Dear Garmt,

When you get married on Friday, remember the last words of *Le tour du
Monde en quatre-vingts jours:

/Qu'avait-il gagné à ce déplacement ? Qu'avait-il rapporté de ce voyage ?

/*Rien, dira-t-on ? Rien, soit, si ce n'est une charmante femme, qui --
quelque invraisemblable que cela puisse paraître -- le rendit le plus
heureux des hommes ! */

/*En vérité, ne ferait-on pas, pour moins que cela, le Tour du Monde ?

To complement these immortal words, please listen to Bing Crosby
singing *Around the World (in Eighty Days) ?

My wife Zahava and me wish you and your bride a lot of happiness in your
new life, and we hope to be able to meet you both soon. It took you and
me almost 10 years since we first met on the Internet, until we met in
the real world, in Bistro Jules in Amiens. We hope the next meeting will
be sooner.
