It was all great. An interesting story. In 1993 I stayed at the hostel in Atlanta and met a woman who became a friend. We kept in touch for a few years but then lost each other. The night I arrived in the Martha's Vineyard Hostel we bumped into each other again. She was in the bottom of my bunk. Does the hostel association have a newsletter we could send our story to?
