Lesson n.4: contract a travel package I closed my eyes and tried to relax. Five minutes passed and I turned back because the sun was giving me a lot of trouble on the skin and so I began to rummage in the bag and took in hand the program of the holiday, or rather of the first twelve days, since my holiday consisted of three travel packages combined in one solution. “So, let’s read this program” I thought, “since I… Read More »Monday, pill number 15
