Tom just reminded me today that we have not yet sent you a thank-you for your wonderful hospitality, as usual. We were barely unpacked from BA when he drove to Boston for a visit with his daughter and family and I had to get back to work for the beginning of a new semester.
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Luna, as usual. We appreciate your advance notice of the rolling subway strikes, taking the car from the airport, your instructions for washing the fruit in vinegar water, where to shop, etc. We want you to know that we did the two-day bike tour and we highly recommend it for future guests if they have such an interest. We were blessed with wonderful weather which made it all the more enjoyable. Neither of us can figure out why residents complain of the heat in BA in December as it was absolutely perfect for us.
We also want to tell you that Charley was an excellent host. He shopped for the best exchange rates for our money, made restaurant recommendations, and kept us up-to-date on the time and locations of the milongas. We were especially appreciative of his help on our final day as he ordered the car for us and helped us with last minute details. How fortunate that you found someone like him as he is fluent in so many languages and he certainly knows his way around the city well
The welcome Cokes in little glass bottles were especially appreciated although they did not last long. Fortunately, we found a couple suppliers nearby.
And Tom wants me to be sure to mention that handing him 500 pesos upon his arrival, prior to getting dollars exchanged, was above and beyond all expectations. He said the Sheridan or Marriot would NEVER have provided such thoughtful service.
Hope you and Rob enjoyed your holiday travels as much as we did. We are already looking forward to visiting BA again.
Tom & Arlene
