It was lovely seeing you both again. We really got to know you well from your previous visits (twice at the penthouse and the other time at the villa) and so while we were preparing for your arrival we felt like it's family or old friends coming to visit. We believe that this is some of the perks of our job, getting to know lovely people. Hope to see you soon.
