          Hi, DBC staff. I'm planning to bring my husband in November to see you and this beautiful place that was my favorite getaway place when I lived in Nairobi 35 years ago. However, I see that it's up for sale -- saw the realtor's listing on-line -- and am afraid to depend on being able to stay with you. What can you tell me about the timeline? any pending offers or knowledge that you will be open for business Nov 11-15? Thanks. Lisa Di Giovanna
