Letter from Joel Halpern to his parents describing his trip to Europe in 1949. This letter describes his time around Lake Lugano in Switzerland and Italy.

He is quite dismissive of the Italian side, describing it as sloppy and dirty. He concludes by describing arriving in Milan and his first impressions of Milan.
