 During our trip you took us ziplining and to see the Cock-of-the-Rock. You “made” our trip to Mindo and I have thought about you often. You helped us make such wonderful memories with your knowledge, warmth and generosity. I was so happy to see your business has become so successful. I read about you and was so impressed. I guess your modesty stopped you from telling us about all your accomplishments.
