4. Snooping, talking, bonding (cheesy i know) and laughing

new friend crushes? yes.

"Puchia rachael, this is not 30 minutes!"

paris? maybe i should overlook the cliché-ness.

i've never in my life really wanted to go to paris badly. but this crepe plus the fashion, plus honduras general lack of glamor has awaken my desire for paris.

ps look at how cute these two travelers are.

this looks so easy and so delicious.

tomato, proscutto (substitute salami?) with cheese (cream?) in the middle, sautéed zucchini in the middle
i wanta try.

like her hair.
