Dear Sr. William TARPAI, it was a really great surprise to notice that you are currently in Puerto Escondido in our superb "Dom Rep". Many greetings for you and admiration for all the interesting things you have done and are doing regarding peace education and related issues. It would be an honor to meet you when you by chance come through Santo Domingo.
Kind regards, Joaquín
