This party posted the following feedback for me:
'Margo Lederer-Prado has been my friend for 40 years since we were children! Her family is wonderful! - Bright, warm, and multi-cultural (American/Chilean/Columbian) They are creative academics, multi-lingual in English and Spanish. Their home is in the heart of Berkeley. They are wonderful hosts. I could not recommend them more highly! And their home is charming.'
