28 Dezember 2014 - Logbook Tres Hombres
First of all I would like to thank you Brava for your hospitality you gave my crew and me. You have so less, but you gave so much. Erick & Marijke you life in a small paradise! By you created by people for people. How welcome you are for everybody that comes to your house on the hill.
