    That is at a private facility and I don't think he takes too many visitors.

    I'll send you a PM.

    That's what I thought too. I figured the picture was some place in Africa. Interesting that he has a Florida address and the pic is from AZ.

    Tomas told me he spends about half the year in Senegal and half the year in FL with his wife.

    That picture was taken at Bob's place about three or four years ago while Tomas was in AZ attending the TTPG conference. A year or two before the whole conference was invited to tour, a select few were invited to tour. Tomas was one of those.
