Hi Tony, I found this fascinating article by chance and thought I would leave my little memories from that time.

Love and thanks for the memories, your cousin Marta

DearTony, What a dear face and sweet smile! It was really hard to have you living away from Martica and me.(Lots of tears, sleepless nights, and fights with the poor social worker because of it) Well, at least we survived it! Loved you then and love you so much always, Your sister, Margi

Tony: That was a great story, brother! I ended up in Lincoln, Nebraska from Camp Matecumbe and even though I always liked my "mota" I also had my first crew cut the first summer there! I did not get a dictionary because I knew some English but I thought the Americans spoke very differently from my teachers in Los Escolapios de la Víbora. Welcome to the cybernetic Pedro Pan groups!
