Raymundo's story

Raymundo lives with his wife and two children, whom he loves very much, in the city of Camana. This city is characterized by having beautiful beaches and a warm climate. It is known for its delicious shrimp and its agriculture, especially for its rice, which is considered among the best in the world.
