My visit in Kinerma touched me very much. It is a delightful village and it was fantastic to meet people and to hear about the history of the place and what is going on. The food was fantastic, and I would like to go back there. Only one thing: I bought some postcards, but only three, what I really regret, because they are so nice. I should have bought more, so I need to go back :-) My guide was nice and really good in translate and telling my information. I was very satisfied.
