The best house in the best company in the best part of Guyana.  Thanks, and until next time…

‘I’ve got married, I’ve had a kid, but a day at the ranch easily catches the “top 10 days of my life” list

…we had the time of our lives….  Ohh… the view, the mountains, the landscapes, the rivers, the bull riding, the horseback riding, the healthy food, the entire family were all  great.  Definitely A+++++, we reckon we shall be back’
