3 hours? For Tapas????

1. Introduction

We didn’t have any intention of publishing this week.

Ana beach in  Lagos was named, in July 2014, the best beach of the world by the Spanish magazine Condé Naste Traveler, followed by the Song Saa in Cambodia, the South Male in the Maldives and the Vietnamese Six Senses Con Dao and Bai Dai.
