I'm trying to figure out the data you asked me, I'm not sure, but it could be that Grandpa Alexander started his voyage about 1928-1929, stayed for about two years. His Odyssey was very romantic. On the way the team of sailors went on a strike. Twice they left the ship. First time Alexander found
himself in India. At that time India was under England. The vice king of India was sir Victor Sassoun (Jewish). He got a liking to the tall skinny guy, Alexander, and even gave him a very precious gift, a white suit privately tailored, from the best fabric. Alexander was elated, feeling like a prince in the suit. He went out to the street, walked along the boulevard, when he came to an intersection an Indian boy came running around the corner and bumped into Alexander, leaving ten black fingerprints on his gorgeous white suit. I think, you already guessed, the suit was ruined, there was no such thing as cleaning at that time. Alexander could never recover from the shock. The favor of the vice - king saved Alexander from being jailed as a spy, the chief officer in the police strongly suspected him.
The second time Alexander arrived to Australia, Sidney. He found good friends in
Latvian community, stayed with them for about 2.5 years, then he decided to return
to Riga, to serve the obligatory two years in the regular army.
To be continued. Take care, hope you'll come home soon. Love, Grandma.

Dear Grandma,
That's a really interesting story. I didn't know grandpa went to India. I don't believe that they didn't have good enough cleaning methods, though. That's really the climax of the story?
