"To be there, like all the precautions and everything we did and to be there and how grateful everyone was for the tourist aspect and how many people said we were their first party or guest they had in months and Months ago what it did for them, to be able to pay their bills or do things for their family, "she said. "I only heard this news when we were there - we felt really good and we felt so safe and we made it as safe as I can imagine anyone doing."
