Coffee and kretek, a good opportunity for me to rest


Espresso, a delicious scoop of vanilla ice cream and kretek. An energy booster. After sipping, it plunges my mind into the depths of profanity, allowing the control of adrenaline. Relaxing. Today, a long journey I do not mind undertaking. It was a hellish day, walking through twisted back lanes and around a few blocks, looking for something that I naturally could not find. Been spaced-out for the past few days, quite an unusual experience but one that I know so well.

Well, anyway, this espresso is the perfect kick-up-reality way to wave the sunset and greet the growing night.
