mount prau: another love story

This post is long overdue. I should have written it a couple of months ago, but you know, there have always been more urgent things to do, or in my case, more “urgent” things to share. Yeah, this is how my scattered mind works –always jumping from one thing to another. Anyway. This trip was […]
