Lesotho – The Mountain Kingdom

Life is really funny… I mean it’s nothing more than memories and thoughts –the only things that are real; whatever that means. I’ve been putting this off for days now, but I just had to write this down somewhere; my memories are fast fading away –of course there are some events I’ve chosen to remember and some that I will probably remember unconsciously.
