Peshawar, Pakistan April 2001 , 5 months before, well ok we all know before what. There I was, hanging out in the wild west, staying in a cramped dorm in the only safe hotel in town, beds so close together they were touching, falling asleep to the sound of gunfire every night. I’d met a…
Same two pictures, but now I’m also featured on the UT store Uniqlo homepage. http://ut.uniqlo.com/stylist I should be happy about it, but there is still a bad taste in my mouth concerning this.No more money as yet.
