2 Winter hikes around Lucerne – “above the clouds”

A smile of a friendly hairdresser when I askContinue reading “Photo story: Beauty salons in Pakse”
The story of the frog
After a few dry and very hot days, rain came in late this afternoon. It started with a few drops falling on the iron roofs – tok tok tok.
