Meeting you and others from the Asociación was so very lovely!  You all had a way of making total strangers feel quite welcome and filled our bellies with yummy comida española!  Thank you for all of the above!

And thank you all, too, for your kindness and generosity offered to our son, Justin.  As you know, he is SO excited to be going to Spain.  I am confident that he will make the most of his opportunities there.  I look forward to  all of us getting together after his travels and sharing his experiences over some more tapas and good Spanish wine!

Until then, be well.
