Hi!
I've just read Robin McKie's article about this amazing site in the Observer I am absolutely amazed and delighted. Congratulations to everybody involved. I hope that I will be able to visit you some time soon. I shall be keeping my eyes peeled for further developments.
Very best wishes (from Mexico, which is where I live)
Phil
