  • As a first step, thanks to the WSPA for this kindly invitation. For me London have very nice memories of my first visit near 9 years ago. No differences in my language since those times: still is horrible, as my children&apos;s said (they have now 20 my son and 18 my daughter) “Dad, please, write anything, you may correct that after, but, by Good sake, not talk!!!!” I always said the same apology, and I hope you accept it: I never study English, I do by my own, listening when my wife help my children to do their home work, and in the early times, reading any veterinary magazine to improve my professional knowledge. So you have now the opportunity to be the witnesses of my statement, and I hope, again, to have your excuses for my mistakes in this small introduction of the AW issue in my country.
