I am just coming back from 3 amazing months in Los Angeles. A strong experience and the conviction that LA is my place on this planet ( Earth ) for the new chapter of my life... Moving to south California is a project I am having since 2 years but after those 3 months, there is not an action that I am doing which is not dedicated to this wish... ( Yeah ! ).
