I always thought “maybe […]

It’s springtime and the whole nature is beginning to awake. Not only animals started to primp for the other sex, but also the humans. You can feel the love in the air and even see many young couples enjoying the intimate togetherness. But if we think about our western cliché towards the […]

Cultural Shock
