This is my 2nd tour to the market with Frank. Connection was a lot better this time than in previous tours eventhough there were definitely some challenge. I deal with it daily in the city. So it is not shocking to me when it happens in small towns around the world. Frank is fun and enthusiastic and his love for his home radiates throughout the tour. Always a great time.
