Mariano was smiling all the time. He did the tour both in English and Spanish, which is more complicated for him, but he didn't care if that meant making the tour a bit longer. He wanted to make sure people was having a good time. He knows a lot about the story of the neighborhood, he provided many interesting details and showed us old pictures and maps so we could understand how the place has changed over the centuries. He was so great!
