  • Prague, Czech Republic

    Last week I was in Prague visiting my cousin. She’s lived there for a few years now. She has the most beautiful voice, writes music, and plays guitar in her band Yo Soy Indigo. Prague is by far one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen. It was a tad cold but that didn’t […]
