Excellent. We have an excellent relationship with the whole village, we have done extensive charity work and we are member of the Rotary club. The village itself is a devout Catholic conclave in a Buddhist country, majority of younger generations have left for Italy to work, organized by the local Catholic priest. However, if you do have important items you should keep it locked up in your suitcase just to keep your mind at ease, should you be of a worrying disposition.
