Yesterday I was floor manager in this big event here at Mexico city, and I am amazed how beautiful this woman still looks, she was one of the guest of honor in the red carpet. She is a very nice and charismatic person, even she is big time famous, she is simple and nice with all the people.
An American woman that Mexico loved, loves and will love forever.
