Diolch yn fawr fach.



I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you have been doing in the last few years. What pleases me most is that whatever you write, even if I do not agree with you, I feel instantaneously that this is coming from someone educated in the good Western universities as I know them. This cannot be said about a lot of pieces on cultural matters on the internet. One only needs to look at some of the recent pieces on the New Acropolis Museum appearing at some sites. It seems the magnificent museum is preventing a few persons from considering restitution matters in a rational way.

Once again, congratulations and thanks.
