Remarkable story
19 September 2019 | by poljakdraganaSee all my reviews

I like very much the package of sights presented in this Tv show. It's interesting, verbally very well presented, with some new details, formerly unknown to me. And I like the passionate approach of the author, probably I would feel the same. She is charming, and as a women I really do not find how someone is disturbed because she's wearing a skirt. She is not a man. Oh, well.
