Thank You Julian, was a pleasure to have you here with us.
Julian is very dynamic and problem solving guy, really able with computer and programing. He knows how to do everything!

I’d like to say thank you all and say that they were my italian family here literily. The work usually is helping cleaning, painting or biulding some thing. Its simple and relax. I would like to be back.
