    Thank you Rick. You are so good at describing and promoting Soy Andina, better than me! Of course I’ve also seen you in action on the Peruvian dance floor, you commendably walk the talk. Or dance the prance…well something like that

    Thank you Rick – you are a master at promoting Soy Andina, better than me. And no slouch on the Peruvian dance floor yourself, I’ve seen you in action. You speak from experience!
