Hallo Zeno,
Wij hebben toen in Senegal prachtige gebieden bezocht, maar Somone kan ik me niet herinneren. Ik heb wel wat gemist als ik al die mooie foto's van jou zie. Ook deze mag er weer zijn.

Bonsoir Zeno,
Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans une belle lumière et sous un bon angle de prise de vue.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures;

  • Great
