Dear Juan, Donal,

We’ve arrived in Boston and are waiting for our flight to Rochester. 

I just wanted to thank you for an amazing experience. It will take many days to absorb all we did, saw and experienced… nature, the sea, food, beer, companionship, music, heritage, language, people and faith. 

What a week!

I’m most grateful for the professionalism and kind support each of you offered. You made the trip special and I’m grateful. Thank you. 

I’m sure you’ll be hearing similar things from the rest of the group. Everyone seemed to have had an experience of a lifetime.  

I look forward to our next adventure. 

Bob
