#1363 – Photo Tales (1)

ENGLISH I decide to start a new series of posts here, starting with this one, where I basically post one or two photos from my daily life and tells some stories about it. I think this is a good idea to compensate my busyness at work this year and the urge to post something here,…

#1288 – Thursday and Friday
