I dont have the time to keep going bqck and fixing things.

Diqne qnd Andre saw the “David-” Michaelangelo’s masterpiece: I will try to make them write in this blog and tell u all about it: I would hzve gone but i didn’t want to/can’t afford to pay the expensive entrance fee: the four of us also hiked up to the top of the town for a reqlly cool view of the city: from there we went even further uphill and walked through an old church
