We put on our party clothes and got into our car, arriving a bit before scheduled so we could see the Villa and help our hosts with the final touches before the guests arrive. The Villa, on the outside is beautiful. It has large bay windows, a fuchsia coloured roof and a terrace with colourful flowers. We can´t wait to go inside so we knock on the door and to our surprise, the doorbell really does ring! The door opens and Piny Boy welcomes us in.
