We were with Janine for only a couple of days... too bad it couldn't have been for longer. In Johannesburg to see family and friends and revisit memories, we so appreciated their hospitality and welcome. It made it seem like home. Janine is totally ready to help out with advice and assistance,chat about her South Africa and her life there (most interesting and educational) and the best 'treat' was the chance to visit her Mother, Nadine Jacobson, famous SA sculptor and fascinating witness to so much of SA history over the past many years... not to mention the exquisite pieces she showed us and some of her albums of photos. Quite an exceptional experience. We look forward to exchanging hospitality with Janine and her husband here in Florence. Cotswold Gardens certainly gets a five-star rating from us.
