Gracias Melisa por todo el apoyo, encantados de haberte recibido, eres una chica súper linda y muy agradable. Siempre serás bienvenida. Abrazos!!



Para mi ha sido una gran experiencia he disfrutado el día a día. Carmen me ha enseñado muchísimas cosas del lugar y de la cultura Mexicana. La convivencia ha sido magnifica tanto con su hijo como su sobrino. Nunca me sentí excluida cuando recibía visitas.
