  1. Dear Renira
    It would be great to talk to you about your work and to see if you might be interested in any relevant freelance projects that might come up with us. You can find out more on http://www.space-doctors.com and http://www.semionaut.net
    I’m about to set out on a 10 day trip to Colombia but look forward to making contact at some point soon after that.
    best wishes
