          Hans and Miranda, We now have a reservation for two nights, both the 11th and 12th. We added the 11th after reading all the fabulous reviews of El Guarda. But we also had to cancel the additional reservation we made for our friends who can no longer join us on the 12th due to an injury they just suffered. So please allow us to reserve a place for dinner on the 12th and we will have the pleasure of staying with you for two nights. Rick and Tina Mowrer Swansea, Illinois
