You would love this city…

I’ve been having courses of Nagara drums for two days, you were right, I love the drums :) I’m thinking of getting one set made by my teacher Narsi. Nasri is the son of Nathulal a figure here of Nagara drums.

I’m thinking of buying a Bullet too. The Royal Enfield one. Continue reading

A journey through the Amazon (4)

Iquitos (Peru) is the biggest city in the world that is landlocked; this means that it only can be reached by plane or boat through the Amazon..

I have trouble remembering the name of all the stuff they sell. I never had a clue what I buy, but it was always tasty.
