What a wonderful week this proved to be! Sometimes numbers do not matter. Huw and I couldn’t believe our luck having Barney all to ourselves. Five rounds of golf with the master and continuous tuition. San Lorenzo and Pinheiros Altos courses were as good as I remembered them from four years ago. The hotel is excellent and transport worked like clockwork. We greatly enjoyed the recommended restaurants as much as the hotel buffets, excellent as they were. Barney arranged a table directly in front of the TV to enable me to watch the Europa cup game and Liverpool’s eventual triumph. He claims to have persuaded our waitress to wear the red dress. What a host! Goodness knows what would have happened if Watford had been playing! We found the flamingos again and the best beach restaurant yet on our day off. Perfect!
