Lectura din dimineata de weekend
Cand vara se va fi sfarsit si veti privi cu nostalgie in urma, din sirul zilelor insorite se vor desprinde cu siguranta una sau doua, pe care le veti considera perfecte.
Sa fie un weekend la mare? Sa fie un drum lung, facut singura, pentru a descoperi un conac intre vai sau un peisaj deluros?
