Hello. Thanks a lot for taking time to write this review under the world sircustances. If Gabriel Garcia Marquez were alive, He would write a book to show with grace and optimism how weak we human beings are and how stoically we would all overcome the current crisis. It was nice to meet you. Sincerely Durán Angel Eduardo
