What role does the tourguide play at the PAMPANITO?   He's got some glaring errors in his information... so it would seem that the input of folks like Aldona Sendzikas (former PAMP curator) and others is lost.

I feel bad for them, because PAMP is our "target" in a lot of ways for competition. You can be fun, breezy, hip, young and cool, and still provide CORRECT information.

Yes, he certainly does have many errors in his tour, im way younger than him, and have spotted the errors already.
