    Min couldn’t do anymore to help. Was always there with a smile on his face and happy to help. Made an effort with everyone and took great pride in the work he was doing. You can’t ask any more than that.

    I loved that I didn't have to organize a Thing but still, I was able to schedule my day the way i wanted it. As the CEO is a local, you also learn much more about the country than going on your own I think, or at least it's easier.
