#ThrowbackThursday and Running Errands: Day 37 in Cuenca

First off because it’s Thursday… #ThrowbackThursday to having afternoon tea at Hotel Mulia in Jakarta, Indonesia with my cousin!

While others went to swim, I sat on this swing and admired the view and reflected. Seriously, I don’t think I’ll have […]
