Xi'an Alas, we have been incredibly decadent today. We have spent the equivalent to one night's accommodation on coffee and cake! I am not at all remorseful- I enjoyed and savoured every sip of coffee and morsel of my baked cheesecake (o.k it was about ... Read more >

St Petersburg

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Thursday, 11 Jan 2007 | Views [483] | Comments [1]
