I wonder how tired she is. I remember her asking how she might fly from Shannon to Imphal. Now, had anyone posed that question ever before?

Yoshiko looks the same. In black and white elegance. The Secret Service people check her in.

In the car Yoshiko tells me there were three mosquitoes that hitched a ride in the plane. I laugh but I think, Oh no! Will that mean malaria from Kolkata?

Yoshio starts taking pictures. She thinks Imphal looks like Havana. All tired, peeling and left behind – that really must be like Havana. I concur. The Uplands is under an embargo of sports, come to think of it.
