    Bert45 replied to the thread Cruz de los Valientes.
    Oh, Kather1na! You come up with the goods once again! What a detective you would make! I'd like to stick that in the pipe of the Tourist Office of Santo Domingo and suggest that they smoke it. However, it indicates that I was wrong in my...
