SHORT TRIP TO CALIFORNIA

145

Splitbus Nation was an option but I felt that going to Holland is not top of my list this weekend!

I think that there will be nothing to see that we haven´t seen or done ,yet!

I had to set priorities and went to LA yesterday to check this Samba out and bring it back home for a very special project!

I´ll keep you posted!
