A great road trip to an old old city built of stone. The US soldiers came here and were hidden in WW 2 and you can just imagine what was going on in the town.
I will be back in September with new ideas, photos and stories. I’ll be working on my two new works while I’m away. I can be contacted on Instagram. Have a great summer.
