Mirella is just a lovely person who understands the importance of the day for us. Unlike other guides, it wasn’t about her; it was about us, and our connection to our relatives and homeland. It’s an emotional day and she understands the importance of it. She also understood what it meant to the locals in the two towns we visited, and she connected us with them and let them relay their story of emigration (from people who stayed behind) with tact and grace. Working with Mirella and visiting our ancestral town was the highlight of our trip.
