    User Feedback

    You are a devoted braquiopod-lover, Adam. Thank you very much for your appreciation.


    If you ever go to Barcelona, I reccomend you to meet Dr. Calzada at the Museu de Geologia del Seminari. He's one of the last world's brachiopod specialists and a very kind person.

    I visit Spain every three months or so to stock up on products I can't get here: English food; books and tortoise products. 

    I haven't been to Barcelona in decades, but hopefully will again in the next year or two as i liked it very much. So I will take you advice about Dr. Calzada then, I hope. :)

    Thank you.
