The two seedlings of the Belly flower tree

Chasing Dalí

Chasing Dalí by Adnan Lermontov

At 12:08 a.m., on May 01, 2011, I heard on T.V. that Osama Bin Laden was killed. Immediately and bizarrely, I thought why don’t I go on a trip to see all my favorite Dalí paintings around the world, and write a travel book about that. How long would it […]
