Merci pour les photos de souvenir JF. Clisse que ça me fait de quoi voir ça, j'aurais vraiment eu de besoin d'un voyage comme ça cette année avec tout le monde comme les premières fois que je suis allé.

Sparky et ses BBQ
Minou en recherche de toute sorte de pièces
Splitskull de Maaca qui achète toujours une game
Le Farmer's Market (les réglisses, la petite amiche, la bouffe...)
Police Academy
Le bar du Days Inn (clisse de beaux souvenirs)
Le Tilted Kilt
Les soupers restos en gagne
Une petite bière de coffre de char sous les arbres

Esti que je m'ennui.
