Letter of the Month More Purple letters
On the 6th of October, Meera Maharaj wrote,

"We had the pleasure of hiring a vehicle from you when we were on holiday in Cape Town. Due to the size of the car we decided to swap for a bigger one. With the terrible weather, changing the car and the ensuing chaos, I left my Nikon camera in the vehicle and did not realise until the next morning when we were in Hermanus. Your agent, Ricardo, tracked down the vehicle and ascertained that the camera was there." (shortened)

Dear Meera, tthank you for your wonderful email. It wins Ricardo this month’s Purple Heart. xxx.
