Mouth Full of Words – La Rioja Alta S.A. wine tasting

Wine, who doesn’t love wine. Wine is dinner with friends talking your hearts out, lunch at the family table solving the world, or the perfect companion at the end of a long, long day.

Narcopolis – Swirls of smoke

Narcopolis – Swirls of smoke

I’ve always liked the idea of reading and getting lost in my own imagination, though there are few books that I have enjoyed reading for the genius intricacies of structure and allure to the aesthetic use of language.
