"Went to the Virgin Islands with John Steinbeck and his wife and found them very virginal (the islands!). Mexico very unvirginal and changed since I was last there. Saw the last three corridas of Carlos Arruza. Too bad he has quite, as he is the best in the world..." "Manolo Do Santros is also retiring and I saw his last fight in Mexico...He was quite good, but has both knees pulverized by the bulls.
