Yolanda Kaye, born in 1951, in rural El Salvador, is the woman wise enough to be Michael's wife and survive. Really she has done more than survive; she is thriving. Doa Yoly as we all affectionately call her, is truly the great woman who is not only behind a great man but also behind a great organization. Her wise words, observations and willingness to listen to gardeners, cooks, account executives and executive team staff alike has provided many of us with a sound "put your feet on the ground and count your blessings" perspective. She is a world-class cook.

One of Michael's and Yolanda's adventures was "Bike New York." They peddled a tandem bicycle 42 miles through the five boros of New York City. "I haven't seen a bicycle built for two in years," an old gentleman remarked. "Is it an antique? "

"The bicycle is new," Doa Yoly replied in her accented English. "Were antiques."

Nov 15, 2003.- A lifetime of memories for us all.
Dear Michael: An enormous Thank You for a wonderful journey in Costa Rica. I loved every moment. I learned so much, and am anxious to share all I experienced with both family and clients. "Memo" was the perfect guide for our group and our pilots and hosts at lunch place were the best. But the country and its people are so very special.

Your staff, Grettel, Natalie and drivers and our rafting guides will stay in my heart forever as will you and Yolanda who so graciously gave of yourselves to ensure a lifetime of memories for us all. Your professionalism and love of Costa Rica leave a lasting impression on those of us fortunate enough to experience them. You have broadened my horizons and enhanced my knowledge of ecological conservation. You have left me with a desire to return and continue learning. To you and Yolanda - and to your entire staff: Thanks so very much for being you.
-Betsy Hall Domoto
