Hey Luis,

Thanks very much for the c.v. Very best of luck with the move to London. 
Whatever happens, we should go our for lunch or a beer, to welcome you 
to England!

I'll wait a day or two to see what else our many job postings gather and 
then let everyone know what we're thinking.

Best regards,
